Benefits of Maintaining NREMT Certification
The EMS Universal Education 24 Hour EMT Refresher Course Meets NREMT Requirements for Recertification.
There are many benefits to keeping or obtaining NREMT certification. We have compiled a short list of reasons why EMS providers should maintain their National Registry of EMTs certification below:
Required to Obtain New Status as EMT
Recently, the NREMT mandated all providers to transition from the EMT-Basic level to the EMT level. This change of title means that the EMT is at a higher level of educational understanding than the previous EMT-Basic. You can read about the new standards by clicking here.
