This course is intended for Paramedics seeking CAPCE approved continuing education hours for NREMT Paramedic renewal. Paramedics may renew state licensure in states that accept CAPCE credits.
Nationally Registered Paramedics (NRP) are required to renew their certification every two years. Recertification may be completed through continuing education or by repeating the Paramedic psychomotor and written examinations. The Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) establishes the continuing education standard used for recertification. The NCCP model requires continuing education in three components – a national component, a local/state component, and an individual component.
Continuing education must be approved by the Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) or by the state EMS office.
Code One has partnered with Prodigy EMS to deliver a high-quality CAPCE approved Paramedic NCCP Refresher program.
National Component (30 Hours)
National component topics include airway and respiration, cardiovascular, trauma, medical, and EMS operations.
Local / State Component (15 Hours)
These hours are flexible unless your state EMS office or local medical control has specific requirements.
Individual Component (15 Hours)
These are flexible hours that may be achieved through any CAPCE approved educational component.
Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT)
The Paramedic NCCP program limits topics delivered by distributive education (recorded sessions delivered online) to 35 hours. Our online NCCP Paramedic Refresher provides an assortment of virtual instructor led training four days per week with four courses offered per day. Session topics are rotated to ensure that content is available to meet needed NCCP topic areas.
How do I start my training?
Once you have registered for the Paramedic NCCP Refresher course, you will be emailed a Registration Code to begin your training immediately. Follow the instructions to create an account on the Prodigy EMS website and enter your Registration Code. You’ll be taken to your dashboard which will display upcoming live courses and any pertinent announcements.
From the dashboard, select “Class Catalog” and begin to choose a class from the list (hint: you can filter to see which classes are required for completion and courses which will have a live component coming up in the next week). Each class will have “Register” buttons for any scheduled live sessions or to register for the self-paced program.
When you register for a self-paced class, you’ll see a “Take Class” button which will allow you to start the class immediately. After the program is presented, you’ll be directed to a quiz for the presented topic. Complete the quiz at the end of the class to receive credit.
When you register for a live class, you’ll receive an email notification with a reminder for the live class date and time. Login 10 minutes prior to the class and select the “Take Class” button to join the live classroom. After the live program is presented, you’ll be directed to a quiz for the presented topic. Complete the quiz at the end of the class to receive credit.
After you’ve completed all of the topic hours for your Paramedic NCCP Refresher, you can load your transcript into the NREMT website for your renewal.
