The UCLA EMT Refresher Course combines online modules, completed at your own pace, with lecture and hands-on skills instruction to provide you the latest in patient care. The lectures are delivered by highly trained Center for Prehospital Care Faculty who will update you on the latest in EMS. Let us provide you a one-stop shop for renewing your EMT certification.

The UCLA EMT Refresher Courses offers:

  • the required 24 hours of course work required to renew in the State of California.
  • the option of completing additional online content to meet the 40 hours required by the National Registry at no additional cost.
  • review, practice, and sign-off on the State Skills Verification
  • required training in Naloxone and Epinephrine administration as well as glucometer use

All students must complete some online education and thus must purchase the online course materials through Jones and Bartlett, found here: https://info.psglearning.com/uclaemtrefresher.

The EMT Refresher course is being conducted on-site. On-site attendance during all 3 days is required for course completion. UCLA and local guidance on masking and other public health measures at the time of the course will be followed.

If you received the NREMT provisional certification and require the skills verification, you can do so by enrolling in the EMT Refresher Course.

EMTs with certifications that have expired may recertify if the date of expiration was less than two years ago. More details on this process can be found on the L.A. County Emergency Medical Services Agency's EMT Certification and Accreditation page.

The UCLA Center for Prehospital Care is an approved Continuing Education Provider for the California EMS (CEP #19-0307) and the California Board of Registered Nursing (CEP #12416).
