Paramedic Refresher/California Paramedic Transition Course

Paramedics seeking to maintain their skills and certification for National Registry must also complete 48 hours of continuing education in specific subject areas every two years. Demonstrate your commitment to excellence by earning and/or keeping your National Registry card! This 4-day course, in addition to your current ACLS provider certification, conveniently meets the 48-hour core content requirement for National Registry recertification.

And if you need an approved EMT-Paramedic to Paramedic transition course to be eligible for National EMS Certification as a Paramedic (NRP) - this is it! 

Our course has a 8-year history of featuring professionals renowned in their respective fields. We feature lecturers such as Dr. Baxter Larmon, Ms. Heather Davis, and others as seen at national conferences. Our course lessons are innovative and fast-paced - designed for the paramedic who is tired of the same old CE.

If you successfully complete the course you will earn a course completion certificate and 32 hours of Instructor Lead CEU credit for paramedics, registered nurses, and mobile intensive care nurses (MICNs). 

And if you need to renew your ACLS, PALS, BCLS, and PHTLS provider certifications, check our list below for convenient course dates!
