This training alone does not satisfy the requirements of the EMT Refresher training. To refresh EMT certification, students must the the complete 24-hour EMS-CE EMT Refresher Topics course, and have valid CPR certification and EMT Skills Testing, the latter of which can be provided by any certified EMS-CE instructor in your area.
While the 24-hour EMS-CE EMT Refresher Topics training is valid in California, each State EMS Agency establishes its own specific EMT certification requirements, many of which utilize the certification process of the NREMT.
Additionally, local EMS agencies, EMS providers, and medical directors can establish higher standards and requirements. Please contact your EMS Agency for specific recertification requirements.
