Recert Info for Affiliated and Unaffiliated EMTs

Does your card expire on March 31 2021?

If so, renewal is now open at both the NREMT and the MA OEMS site. NREMT.org replaces the massemt.org site for MA-only EMTs

Due to the COVID State of Emergency, your EMT card will not expire until June 30,2021, BUT you must complete all of your Recert Education by 3/31/2021 All Education can be completed online this year only!


You are actively working and affiliated with an agency that provides patient care. (with or without an ambulance) You will work with your Agency's Designated Training Officer to participate in training and complete all recert requirements.

Unaffiliated: You are not actively working in pre-hospital patient care in Massachusetts. If you are Nationally-Registered, you will select 'inactive' as your "my certification' status at NREMT:

  • You will complete and enter your education into your transcript.
  • You will assign your education to the required categories and renew your NREMT, then you will renew your MA EMT card
  • Reminder that THIS YEAR, you may take all classes ONLINE

If you are Massachusetts-Only (No NREMT certification), and your residence is in Region 1, you must affliate with WMEMS Region 1 office and we will act as your Training Officer. You will enter your education into your transcript, assign your education into the required categories and fill out your application. Once the application is submitted WMEMS will review your education for approval. You can save time by uploading your proof of education into your transcript. Otherwise you must provide copies to our office by email, fax or US mail.
