This 24-hour EMT Retest Refresher (EMT Refresher) is a dynamic, high-quality online refresher course that offers the full 24 hours of NREMT NCCR-approved course content in order to retest. This retest program consists of multiple modules that are self-paced.
After successful completion of an approved EMS education program, candidates are initially given three attempts to pass the cognitive examination (provided all other requirements for National EMS Certification are met). If a candidate is unsuccessful on an exam attempt, they may apply to retest 15 days after the last examination. After three unsuccessful examination attempts, EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic candidates must submit official documentation verifying the completion of a remedial training program.
Remedial Training Requirement
Remedial training is designed to provide candidates with additional education and to improve their performance on subsequent examination attempts. After a remedial training program is complete, the candidate is given additional attempts to pass the examination (provided all other requirements for National EMS Certification are met). Candidates who fail to pass the cognitive exam after a total of six attempts are required to complete an entire state-approved education program.
