The EMT remedial training requirement can be satisfied through three different options:

- NCCR 20 hours of continuing education: Completion of the 20 hour National Competency Component from the NCCP model.
- Continuing education topic hours: EMT remedial may be completed by continuing education and must include the topics and hours listed here under Traditional Model.
Note: Some states require the traditional refresher course and will not accept continuing education hours. Please refer to your state’s particular requirements.
Which Program do I Choose?
Our NREMT refresher programs include on-demand content & Live Virtual Instructor Led Training (VILT) which is considered the same as In-Person. The NREMT program is all inclusive and will give you all the courses required by the NREMT as a refresher or remedial course.
Our self-paced programs only include on-demand content and are not suitable as a NREMT refresher or remedial course.
What’s the Next Step?

WHAT OUR MEMBERS SAY
CE Solution’s has been a vital key to our EMS training. We are a small BLS Fire Department and are exposed to time and budget constraints like everyone else. CE Solutions has allowed our Firefighters to stay on track with their training and provide a stress free, productive learning environment.
We are very pleased with our last training results and have received positive feed back from the crews. We have, even by coincidence, had calls that pertained to subject that was being studied that same day. It gave our crews a great sense of accomplishment and pride to relate their training towards the needs of others.
The customer service has been excellent and top notch!
Keep up the good work.
I personally like that the material was very detailed. Although some people will not appreciate the length of the material I am the person that will continually ask why, and those answers where found in the details of the article. I also like the pictures that accompanied the material.
I am most impressed by the use of mp3 recordings. I am a new father of twins and work a lot of overtime and sometimes a second job. Some times I don’t have the time to sit down and read the material through. This mp3 has enabled me to study while driving to and from work and working out. Thanks a lot!!!!
Unbelievable! Very good service! Our department signed up last month and this is so much better than going to boring classes on my days off! Usually, I complain about the decisions our supervisors make, but I can’t complain about this!
Right from the start, CE Solutions impressed us with their efficient, professional manner – an approach that not only inspired confidence, but generated the results we were looking for. We needed a cost effective solution to the problem supplying continuing education to our members when our training supervisor retired.
Your CEU program is like gold to me! I was close to expiring and thought I had enough hours to renew my license but I only had half of the required amount. I called your office on Saturday morning and was amazed to hear someone answer the phone. Better yet, you were able to answer all of my questions and get me registered immediately. Thanks so much, lifetime customer.
I found the course enlightening and very helpful. Thank you for developing a computerized self-study program that addresses the continuing education needs of paramedics.
This course was easy to follow and easy to use! the material was accurately comparable to other sources of literature that I’ve studied from. Although I’ve met the required 30 hrs. of CEUs to renew my E.M.T. basic certification through this course, I look forward to the continuing review of all the materials provided in this course.
Your site is just what I needed. To be able to do my CE in between work and school and being a mom. It has the perfect fit in my time schedule.
As I finish the required number of articles to renew my EMT, I just want to let you know how impressed I have been by this series of articles. Every article I read was well written, very informative and kept one’s attention. I look forward to more articles in the future for my next renewal.
I was a little skeptical at first but I called my state EMS to verify that these are valid credit hours and that I could do all of my CE credits with your company and was excited when they said YES that I could do them with your company! This will save me a lot of time and money. I signed up about a week ago and I want to say that I am extremely impressed at how easy it is to navigate the site and the articles are actually interesting. The Medical Terms article used humor which has really helped me to remember some terms. I am a satisfied customer!!!
Thank you so much for giving me this option to complete my CE. As a Paramedic who returned to college to complete a degree in Biology and Chemistry I had no time during this last cycle to physically attend enough CE classes, thank you!
If you know who authored the medical terminology section of the current CE articles, I’d love to know!!! What a riot!!! This person has a great sense of humor and it would be nice to send them a personal email to thank them also for such a refreshing perspective on what could be a very dry subject. I’d appreciate you forwarding their address if you know it!!
Thank you so much again, great idea for a business, I wish you all the success in the world!
I love your program. There just aren’t enough hours in a day to do what you have to. I’m glad this program let’s you take your CE’s whenever you need to. I am especially pleased with your support staff. Gilbert was quick, and very helpful. I will definitely be using you guys again. Thanks, from another satisfied EMT.
I am a Semi-Retired Paramedic leaving EMS approx. 3 years ago I needed a good source for EMS Continuing Education and after searching the Web I found CE-Solutions, I recertified last time with the help of CE-Solutions and will be doing it again this time around.
