Course Description and Options

EMT Renewal and Skills Validation

The EMT Renewal Course includes all 24 hours required by California and meets the CE requirements for content specific course work as required by the NREMT and for meeting the "refresher" requirements because you have failed the NREMT 3 times.  It also includes your EMT Skills Validation applicable to California and NREMT renewal.

The 6 modules are guided self-study that are completed at your convenience. When you register you will pick the date to come in and test your skills. All of the CE hours are instructor based since we have a staff person assigned to you that you can call or e-mail with any questions. All materials and quizzes are on-line. We even have the skills sheets posted for you to help you prepare. This course also meets the CE requirements for content specific course work as required by the NREMT.

EMT Skills Validation

The EMT Skills Validation Only course is for the EMT who already has all of his/her continuing education hours and just needs skills verified. When you register you will pick the date to come in and test your skills. Our course meets the State of California and the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) skills requirements.

EMT CE Only

The CE Only option is for those who already have skills and only need 24 hours of CE.  The NREMT allows you to repeat a renewal course and get credit for the hours again. If all you need is an additional 24 hours of instructor-based CE, select the EMT CE Only.  Once the six modules are completed successfully on-line, we will mail you your CE Certificate. There are no skills included in this option and no "class time" required.

BLS Add-On Renewal Option

If you also need to renew your BLS, you can register for this as a combination course and save $20. The BLS is done by eLearning with skills validation performed on site during your EMT Skills Validation.

We offer a couple of options for you to maintain your EMT Certification, for California of the NREMT or BOTH!

EMT Renewal Course Objectives

  1. EMT Preparatory
  2. Airway Management
  3. Patient Assessment
  4. Medical and Behavioral Emergencies
  5. Trauma
  6. Obstetrics, Infants and Children

EMT Skills Validation Course Objectives

The EMT Skills Validation is part of the EMT Renewal Course or can be taken as a stand-alone course if you already have your CEs and just need your skills renewed. This course also meets the requirements for new EMT skills validation for EMT candidates whose skills have expired for the NREMT. The EMT Skills Validation is for competency verification only, and is NOT a skills training course.

There are no CE credits offered for this course. 

Upon successful course completion, participants will have been evaluated and competency verified, satisfying both California and NREMT skills validation, in:

  1. Trauma Assessment
  2. Medical Assessment
  3. Bag Valve Mask Ventilation
  4. Oxygen Administration
  5. Cardiac Arrest Management with AED
  6. Hemorrhage Control and Shock Management
  7. Spinal Motion Restriction- Supine and Seated
  8. Penetrating Chest Injury
  9. Epinephrine and Naloxone Administration
  10. Childbirth and Neonatal Resuscitation
Successful Completion

Successful completion of the EMT Skills Validation course means that you have passed all skills required by the certifying agency with at least the minimum score on each skill, and have NO Critical Criteria marks. If a candidate gets below the minimum score for passing on a skill, or gets a Critical Criteria mark, that candidate has failed the skill. Retest Failure of three (3) or less skill stations entitles you to a single same day retest of those skills failed at no extra cost. Failure of four (4) or more skill stations constitutes a failure of the entire skills validation, requiring a retest of the entire skills validation set required by the certifying agency. There are no same day retests available. You will have to register and pay the fee for a new skills validation course.
