Kansas and National EMT Recertification

An EMT Refresher course has been approved for Kansas state recertification for EMTs and First Responders. It also meets the CE hours distribution for the National Continued Competency Program for NREMT. It does not provide skills verification for NREMT recertification. 

The course consists of 26 hours of online lectures and tests, available beginning Oct. 15, along with 16 hours of face-to-face lab work, from 0800 to 1700 on Nov. 5 and 6 at JCCC. All online coursework must be completed by Nov. 16 to receive a course completion certificate. 

Access to a reliable high speed internet connection is recommended for the online portion, which will be conducted through JCCC’s learning management system, Desire2Learn. Access to D2L will be given after enrollment in the course. 

Bob Parker is the coordinator for the course, and can be contacted by email or at 913-469-8500, ext. 4204.
