CAPCE Accredited Paramedic Refresher Program (NREMT and Advanced Practice Paramedic)

CAPCE Accredited Paramedic Refresher Program (NREMT and Advanced Practice Paramedic)

The 2019 CAPCE accredited, 60 hour Paramedic - NRP Recertification Course Certificate is designed to accomplish the NREMT Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) completion and update the Advanced Provider with the newest research and techniques being applied in the global environment. The Resuscitation Group is also able to provide a 30 hour CAPCE Accredited National Component Hours Paramedic recertification certificate for those whom only require the national component hours.

Completion of the new Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 60 hours of continuing education to recertify. The complete model requires continuing education in three components:

  1. 30 hours of National component content per the NREMT,
  2. 15 hours of local/state component content, and,
  3. 15 hours of individual component content.

Courses that cannot be applied towards recertification requirements include duplicate courses, clinical rotations, instructor courses, management/leadership courses, performance of duty, preceptor hours, serving as a skill examiner, and volunteer time with agencies.

If the participant completes the program of study, the participant will be awarded a 60 hour Paramedic - NRP Recertification Course Certificate. The participants will also receive a complete set of high risk/low frequency skills sheet (surgical cricothyroidotomy, pericardiocentesis, endotracheal intubation, ultrasound guided procedures/vascular access, simple thoracostomy) evaluations completed with an instructor and/or physician during the component hours.
