Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) has announced a deadline extension and important modifications to the current recertification cycle for EMS practitioners.
According to the NREMT announcement:
The National Registry's Board of Directors approved a motion extending the current recertification deadline from March 31, 2020 to June 30, 2020. Additionally, for Registrants due to recertify March 31, 2020 Distributive Education (DE) limitations will be removed. This allows all continuing education to be accomplished outside of classrooms.
Summary of modifications:
- All certifications with an expiration date of March 31, 2020 will remain valid until June 30, 2020.
- The current recertification deadline of March 31, 2020 extended to June 30, 2020.
- There will be no late fees for submissions after March 31, 2020.
- The Distributive Education (DE) limits will be waived for the remainder of this recertification cycle. However, if you need to take advantage of this new option, it will take time for our software to be modified.
