2019 EMS Personnel Renewal Requirements

Nationally Certified EMS personnel must maintain their National Registry license in order to renew their Oklahoma license.

Nationally Certified EMS personnel may recertify by written examination or by fulfilling the required NCCP continuing education.  Refer to the NREMT’s Agency Guide for Recertification for more information. (https://content.nremt.org/static/documents/Agency_Guide_Recert_8_18.pdf)

 

Education requirements for the NCCP program can be found on the NREMT website. (https://www.nremt.org/rwd/public/document/recertification) These CE’s do not require Oklahoma licensed EMS Instructors to teach them, and the individual CE’s do not require Oklahoma State approval.

LCCR:  Oklahoma does not currently require CE’s under the Local Continued Competency Requirements portion of the NCCP.

 

Non-Nationally Certified EMS personnel still operate under pre-2016 statutes requiring a State approved refresher course and the additional Con-Ed requirements.  This applies to Oklahoma EMR’s and “grandfathered” EMS professionals allowed to drop their National Registry certification before 2016. Additionally, the Oklahoma Intermediates certified as National Registry EMT’s but maintaining the Intermediate level must meet the NCCP requirements to maintain their National Registry EMT certification while also meeting the pre-2016 Oklahoma requirements of the State approved refresher course and Con-Ed Requirements.  The CE requirements for State licensure and for NREMT’s NCCP can be shared.
