Everyone will begin their recert process at NREMT
Massachusetts only accepts MA-approval numbers and CAPCE approval numbers as proof of valid continuing education.
You may complete your training via in-person, distributive or virtual instructor-led methods.
There are NO LIMITS on the type of education you choose.
In other words, now and going forward, you may complete all of your education on-line at your own pace if you so choose. OR, you may complete your education via all in-person classes. OR, you may complete your education via virtual instructor-led classes. OR, you may mix and match these methods at your convenience.
There are no longer any formulas to determine acceptable training.
Just be sure your classes all have either a MA approval number OR a CAPCE number!
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.
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:
NOTE: If you are an UNAFFILIATED Massachusetts-Only EMT(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.
Once the fee/form at NREMT are completed, 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. Once we approve you, NREMT will provide your information to MA OEMS. If you have already filled out your documentation and paid your fee to MA E-Licensing, your renewal will happen automatically.
Review all renewal instructions and get the link to see your expiration status:
