Pelham Training

36-hour EMT Refresher


Pelham’s EMT refresher course is conducted in accordance with the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT) guideline. The EMT National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 40 hours of continuing education to re-certify.

The model requires continuing education in three components:

  1. A national component
  2. A local/state component
  3. An individual component

This course covers the National Component requirement of 20 hours with 16 additional hours that may be applied to Local/State or Individual categories. The 20-hour component qualifies for remediation for students needing additional testing with the cognitive exam.

The Pelham Training EMT Refresher Course is fast paced but easy to follow.

Like all Pelham classes, we offer a good mix of classroom, demonstration, and real-time scenarios to keep the student engaged. You will spend more time out of your seat than in it.

Our EMT Refresher Course offers the most current evidence-based information to be introduced in the classroom setting then put in scenario-based training using a mix of Problem Based Exercises (PBE), high fidelity simulations, and tabletop drills.

The principles introduced in the EMT Refresher Course are a compilation of guidelines integrating operational and medical requirements into a consolidated set of best practices specific to out of hospital care and management by the EMT.

The primary goals of the course are:

  • To meet the refresher requirements
  • To strengthen the use of Medical Operations Handbooks
  • To introduce new material as well as refresh current practices
  • Present useful information that can be put to use immediately

Class meets for three days from 08:00 – 20:00 and there is an overnight assignment on the first day that may be completed in class as time permits. 

You will be actively involved in your training during this course. It is our goal to present information that makes sense, is easy to remember, and can be put to use on your next patient.

We can’t do it for you but we will do it with you!
