EMS Round Table

2019 National Registry Refresher

The Central Iowa EMS Directors Association is hosting an NREMT refresher course.  The refresher course is open to all  EMS providers. You can view the flyer by clicking here.

The National Registry has changed its format. Recertification is based on the National Continued Competency Project (NCCP) requirements plus additional hours set by local and individual preferences. The amount of continuing education hours that meet NCCP requirements are as follows:

  • EMT – 20 hours NCCP content
  • AEMT – 25 hours NCCP content
  • Paramedic – 30 hours NCCP content

The Central Iowa EMS Directors Association will be offering a refresher curriculum that will cover the NCCP requirements for EMT and AEMT. Paramedics will need to take an additional 5 hours of National content that will be offered by distributive education in February of 2019.

Please note the format change – the entire refresher will be held over 3 days – Friday,  Saturday and Sunday of a single weekend. Content is no longer divided between basic and advanced weekends.

When: February 8th, 9th, & 10th,  2019 (8:00-5:00 each day)

Where: Mercy East Tower, 1111 6th Ave, Des Moines, IA 50314

Cost:  $75 daily, $150 full 3 days.
