The board of directors for the National Registry of EMTs announced that Distributive Education limits will be waived for providers recertifying in 2022.  

In a press release, the NREMT noted that for EMTs, AEMTs and paramedics scheduled for recertification March 31, 2022, and EMRs due for recertification on Sept. 30, 2022, the organization will allow all continuing education to be finished online “through any state-accepted or CAPCE-accredited program or education site.” 

“The National Registry and our Board of Directors spent time and effort making this decision,” said Bill Seifarth, executive director of the National Registry. “We reached out to many different stakeholders and partners as our goal was to ensure we were not creating a barrier.” 

In-person continuing education will also continue to be accepted.
