Log on and take the courses one block at a time and in any order you choose. Once you finish all of the modules, you are done, we report to CAPCE and in your NREMT account you can import your class with the click of a button. Enrollments are good for up to 24 months or course completion, whichever comes first. Plan ahead, and enjoy completing the courses at your own pace.

DistanceCME was started by a Nurse/Paramedic, a Physician and a Paramedic deployed with the US Army in Iraq. “My National Registry Paramedic certification was coming up on its expiration while I was deployed. There was nowhere in the desert where I could take face to face classes to meet the National Registry requirement for non-distributive education. I thought, wouldn’t it be great if I could take the required courses online with real-time interaction to meet those requirements? There wasn’t anyone out there who did this. So after speaking with my partners, we spent a year putting together the technology and came up with a solution. The solution is the platform we launched here on Distancecme.com.” Launched in 2011, DistanceCME has seen over 25,000 providers use us to stay certified, each saving time and money keeping their certifications up-to-date with little to no effort.
