  • What is a self-paced course and how is it different from a live course or a virtual live course?

    The NREMT requires providers participate in both virtual live instructor-led classes (F5 — National Component) as well as self-paced online courses (F3 — Individual and State/Local Component). A face-to-face class (F1) would replace either of these requirements as long as the F1 classes cover all of the objectives required by the National Registry.

    Most states also accept F1, F3 and F5 courses in order to fulfill any and all requirements for recertification

    CareerCert’s self-paced courses can be purchased using a 1-year or 2-year subscription. You will have access to hundreds of courses 24/7 so that you can complete whenever and wherever it’s most convenient for you. F5 classes are conducted by a live instructor in a virtual classroom. Classes are offered on various dates and times to make them as convenient as possible. National refreshers are offered through CareerCert VILT Programs and there is one available for each provider type.

  • Will my credits be reported to my National Registry account?

    CareerCert, as a CAPCE accredited education provider, is required to report all completions for all users to CAPCE. We use the profile information that you enter into the CareerCert platform to report these completions. Your National Registry account can be automatically populated with the completions reported to CAPCE if the account configuration allows. CareerCert also reports to Virginia, Florida and New Jersey as required by those state EMS Offices. Certificates issued by CareerCert will bear the CAPCE accredited course number, hours and level for all providers except those in states that require their own numbers (Virginia, Florida, New Jersey, Texas).
