At EMT-CE.com, we have two types of refresher courses for EMTs. A 20-hour F5 NCCP refresher, and a 24 hour traditional refresher course. Let's break both of those down a bit so you can understand the differences.

The 20-hour NCCP refresher is included in three recertification bundles: Recertification bundle, NCCP Refresher course, and Remedial bundles. It aligns exactly with the National Component of the NCCP model for recertification. Here is a link to the NREMT website outlining your EMT recertification requirements: https://www.nremt.org/rwd/public/document/emt-recert.

The 20 hours are broken down into ten 2-hour F5 courses. To view a list of our upcoming course times, click here: https://emt-ce.com/refresher-courses
