State Certification Requirement Information

State requirements are in constant flux. Our team believes that we serve you best by being up to date on the needs for your state license renewal. However, your state office of EMS is the source of the most accurate information.

States With Unique Requirements

When taking CareerCert courses, here are some unique state requirements to consider:


After each self-paced course you complete, you will receive a certificate of completion which will be placed in your “Certificates” tab. After you complete your entire live course calendar program, you will receive one certificate to show you have met all the required F5 live instructor-led hours.

Uploading your certificates is simple. CareerCert has access and permission to upload certificates to the following states: Florida, Virginia, and New Jersey.

We also upload certificates to CAPCE directly but not to NREMT. NREMT, however, has a CAPCE upload tool on their website you can use to make the process easier. 

Personal Settings

If you wish to receive notifications about when your next live course is starting, you can enable that option in your profile. 1) Log in to your profile, which is located on your dashboard. 2) Select the “Live Schedule Notification” option. 3) Set your preferred notification options  and you can turn off and on the options that you would prefer of when to receive a notification of the start time of your class.
