Kansas and National EMT Recertification

The JCCC EMS program is offering a new and updated EMT refresher course designed to encompass all hours needed to satisfy the requirements for certification at the EMT level. Whether you need hours to recertify under the new Kansas Continuing Competency Plan or for either the NCCP or traditional model for the NREMT, this course will provide every hour in every module you need.

This hybrid class will have three course meeting dates on the JCCC campus as well as online content to be completed. The class will meet on Sunday, Oct. 15, and the weekend of Nov. 18-19, with the online content to be completed in between. Class meeting times are 0800-1700 each day.

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 and instructions on how to navigate the system will be given during the first day of the course. 

This updated course will include the following:

  • Nationally validated pre and post course exam
  • Skills labs and testing
  • Simulation-based psychomotor testing
  • Updated lecture content

Successful completion of the course will grant each student a certificate for forty (40) hours of state-approved EMS CE, covering all Kansas and national topic areas. Enrollment prior to Sept. 15 qualifies for the “early bird” discount of $100 on course enrollment. 

Professor Scott Craig will be coordinating this course and can be contacted via email or by phone at 913-469-8500, ext. 3289.

JCCC will offer a paramedic refresher in the early spring of 2018, prior to the March 31 recertification deadline. Details will follow on this page and the JCCC Continuing Education website.
