Training for EMT Personnel


Kansas and National EMT Recertification

The Johnson County Community College EMS program offers annual, comprehensive EMT and paramedic refreshers on our Overland Park, Kansas, campus. The design of each course is to meet the needs of all students needing a refresher course or recertification. Courses are designed to meet the requirements for both the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and the Kansas Continued Competency Plan, offering every hour in every topic for each certification and licensure level. All courses are approved through the Kansas Board of EMS.

The classes are presented in a hybrid format. Each course will meet on two separate weekends for pre and post-testing and hands-on practice and lecture content is delivered online within the college's learning management system. Access to a reliable high-speed internet connection is required for successful completion. Access to the course and instructions on how to navigate will be presented on the first class session for each course.

Successful completion of the training program will grant attendees certificates for both NREMT recertification and Kansas recertification at the respective level of the course. Early enrollment for a discounted price is available for each section.

All classes are coordinated through Scott Craig, Associate Professor of EMS and the Continuing Education Coordinator for EMS. He can be contacted via email or by phone at 913-469-8500, ext. 3289.
