Georgiaemsacademy Refresher Course Program

Georgiaemsacademy has been teaching EMS refresher courses all over Georgia since 2009.  Development of the course began after the rollout of the georgiaemsacademy continuing education program.  Numerous requests for a refresher course were made through the website. It became obvious there weren't enough refresher courses being taught yearly to satisfy the need, so georgiaemsacademy taught traveled extensively through the state for the next four years teaching refresher courses on site.  In 2012, the National Registry of EMT’s decided that Refresher Courses could be taught through live webcasted sessions. The result was a completely online EMS refresher course that ran continuously for five years. In 2017, georgiaemsacademy developed a completely online National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) for all levels and approved by the Georgia Department of Public Health Division of EMS.      

The National Continued Competency Program

In 2012, the National Registry introduced a new recertification model, the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP). Constructed using methodology similar to that of the American Board of Medical Specialties requirements, the new NCCP model streamlines the recertification process into three strategic categories of continuing education: National, Local, and Individual.  The NCCP offers numerous improvements that will impact EMS for the better for years to come. These changes allow a platform for evidenced-based medicine to reach EMS professionals all over the country, give state and local agencies the freedom to dictate a portion of the national recertification requirements and provide a foundation for the EMS professional to embrace lifelong learning.

After extensively teaching the EMS Refresher Course (as it was conceived by the Department of Transportation), georgiaemsacademy.com is happy to teach the new NCCP material.  We are currently teaching off the 2016 NCCP curriculum devised by the National Registry of EMT’s (the most current) and look forward to developing future iterations of the NCCP program as they were well conceived and organized.  Our program is approved by the Georgia Department of Public Health Division of EMS. The National Registry will allow a course to either be approved by a State Office of EMS or by CAPCE (we did not seek approval through CAPCE, however EMS personnel from all over the United States can use the program because it was approved by a State Office of EMS).  

The Required Number of Hours Are Different Than Before

According to NREMT, all EMTs, AEMT’s, and Paramedics due to recertify on or after March 2019 are required to utilize the NCCP.  The 2016 EMT National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 40 hours of continuing education to recertify.  The 2016 AEMT National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 50 hours of continuing education to recertify.   The 2016 Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 60 hours of continuing education to recertify.  The model contains three components, or 'buckets': a national component, a local or state component, and an individual component.

Utilization of Various Methods of Instructional Distribution

National Registry acknowledges various modes of distribution as it applies to instruction.  Based on their history and current website, the following describes acceptable methods of delivery as per the National Registry of EMT’s.

  1. Classroom or Traditional:  A live training interaction with an instructor at a location.  Students transport themselves to said location and participate in the learning process.  The vast majority of the National and some of the State & Local Scope must be taught either through classroom/traditional or VILT (see #2).  
  2. Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT):  VILT is similar to a classroom or traditional setting, only the instructor is presenting material live in a live webcast.  Students have the ability to interact with the instructor during the session. VILT cannot be filmed and must be scheduled and attended in a live setting.  The vast majority of the National and some of the State & Local Scope must be taught either through classroom/traditional or VILT.
  3. Distributive:  Distributive education would be defined as an educational activity in which the learner, the instructor, and the educational materials are not all present at the same time, and students and instructors are not able to interact in real time.

Who Can Teach The Class

NREMT will accept any State or Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) (Formerly known as CECBEMS) approved EMS–related education to fulfill these requirements Georgiaemsacademy.com did not seek approval through CAPCE, however EMS personnel from all over the United States can use the program because it was approved by a State Office of EMS.

Cost of the Program

The program costs $100 for EMT, $150 for AEMT, and $200 for Paramedic.  The price includes the National, State & Local, and Individual Scopes. All courses were approved by the Georgia Department of Public Health Division of EMS and are therefore acceptable by the National Registry of EMT’s.

Enrollment and Completing the Program

Enrollment is completed through the site.  Students request to sit in the Refresher Course program and are asked a couple of questions before being enrolled.  After enrollment, student can pay for the program using Paypal from a link in the Refresher Course portal. Students then reserve a seat in the available sessions.  If a student can not complete all the required sessions during the current offering, the student can just take the sessions he/she missed the next time the program is offered.  The sessions do not necessarily have to be taken in any order. Start now and finish later.
