To qualify for renewal/recertification an applicant must renew on or before the expiration date of the certification. If the certification is not renewed within 90 days of the expiration date, the certification will become void and or expire and as a result the applicant can no longer practice as an EMS provider (Please see reinstatement requirements). To qualify for renewal/recertification an applicant shall meet one of the following requirements:
- Applicants must complete an approved refresher-training course with a minimum of 53 hours. Refresher training courses shall include both written and practical testing; or
- Complete one out-of-state refresher training course form with a minimum of 53 hours over the lifetime of the certificate which may be accepted in lieu of a refresher training course required by this department provided: (i) the applicant is currently certified as an AEMT for AEMT recertification or as a person entitled to perform similar services under a different designation in another state; (ii) the refresher training program is equal to the refresher training program required by this department; and (iii) the refresher training program is approved by the appropriate regulatory body of such other state.
