Scott McConnell, RN, BSN, CEN, NRP, EMS-I, and Distance CME co-founder, discusses the advantages of recertifying your NRAEMT online and how Distance CME can help.

Recertifying your NRAEMT

To recertify as an NRAEMT, you need to take 72 hours of coursework. These 72 hours are divided into 36 hours of refresher courses and 36 hours of ‘other’ educational content. Distance CME offers several packages that meet these requirements. Our live, online continuing education is a great way to recertify as an NRAEMT. You don’t have to sit in class rooms, take time off of work, or miss out on personal time.

Live 48 Hour EMS Refresher

This program is designed for the NRP or State paramedic who needs a refresher course to re-certify your State and/or National Registry Paramedic certification, or the Paramedic student who has been unsuccessful with the National Registry Paramedic exam 3 times and needs an accepted refresher course that will allow them to retest, or a State certified paramedic who needs an accepted refresher course to allow them to take the National Registry exam.

Distance CME™ offers LIVE online lectures in palatable 2-hour modules. The modules cover both the core and flexible refresher course content, offering medics the capability of satisfying 100% of the required 48 hours without ever having to leave their home or station. The lectures are scheduled to accommodate the busy provider’s varying shifts as well as addressing the needs of medics in varying time zones, even paramedics overseas. In addition, all these courses have CAPCE accreditation (F-5 VILT).

Our refresher programs delivers all 48-hours in an instructor-led format! This paramedic refresher does not provide practical skills validation. Therefore, your training officer or medical director must help you fulfill this requirement.

The CECBEMS/CAPCE course number for refresher course is 17-Gann-F5-0001.

There are classes every day, consequently there’s no reason to go in order. Classes are in session 7 days a week, morning, afternoon, and evening to accommodate all schedules and time zones. For more, check out the current Course Calendar.
