NREMT Recertification

There are two ways you can renew your NREMT.  

  1. Recertification by Exam
  2. Recertify by Continuing Education

Recertification by Exam

This option enables you to demonstrate continued cognitive competency without documenting continuing education.

    • Log in to your National Registry account. Complete a Recertification By Exam application and pay the exam fee.
    • After 24-48 hours, log in to your National Registry account and print your Authorization to Test (ATT) letter. Follow the directions in the letter to schedule your exam.
    • You may make one attempt to take and pass the exam between April 1 (one year prior to your current expiration date) and March 31 (your expiration date). A cognitive competency by exam form will become available through your National Registry account upon successful completion of the exam.
    • Return your completed cognitive competency by exam form by March 31 with signatures and supporting documentation. All other recertification requirements (including criminal conviction statement, verification of skills, etc.) must still be met and verified.
    • PLEASE NOTE THAT NHCPR IS AN AUTHORIZED PEARSON VUE® TESTING CENTER AND WE OFFER THIS EXAM.  Follow the steps above and choose New Hampshire CPR as your testing location.

Recertify by Continuing Education.

This option is the most popular to recertify your NREMT certification.   By attending approved education you not only do you satisfy the NREMT recertification requirements, but you also receive the latest updated information regarding EMS.

New Hampshire CPR, LLC offers CAPCE approved continuing education which meets or exceeds the standards set by the NREMT.   

To help with understanding which NHCPR courses you need to take, we have created a cheat sheet document that explains how our courses fit into your NREMT renewal plan.

 By taking creating your 3-course bundle, you will receive enough hours for most of your National Content and many levels will have extra hours that can be applied to your Individual Hours or your Local/State component.  These courses are approved for all EMS levels.
