EMS Continuing Education
TMCC's EMS Continuing Education (CE) is dedicated to bringing current evidence-based classes for continued training and education of the working professional.
This includes EMS practitioners at all levels for professional development and certification/licensure maintenance in accordance with local, state and national standards.
We provide non-credit classes and recertification courses using the CAPCE (Commission on Accreditation for Pre-hospital Continuing Education) accredited curriculum. This allows continuing education credits to be used in states where they accept CAPCE approved providers.
Refresher Course Information
TMCC is proud to offer EMS refreshers for both EMTs and Advanced EMTs who wish to recertify with both National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) and any state who accepts CAPCE-approved providers.
Our refreshers are designed on current evidence-based practice to make sure you are up-to-date on medical practices for continued training and education. At the completion of the course, a certificate of completion will be given to each participant that will then need to be sent in with the corresponding paperwork or uploaded online for NREMT or State of Nevada.
The State of Nevada and NREMT both require current CPR cards to obtain renewal on certifications. Note: the EMT/AEMT Refresher courses do not offer CPR. If you are in need of CPR renewal, see TMCC's Basic Life Support workshops.
Refresher Course Prerequisites
You must hold current EMT or AEMT certifications, unless you are required to take the refresher to get your certification up to date or need to retake the NREMT Cognitive Exam. Please contact the State of Nevada and/or NREMT for further information.
For further information recertifcation, visit NREMT.
The State of Nevada now requires all documentation to be uploaded on their online platform with the application completed in its entirety. For more information about online renewals and EMS regulations, visit Nevada Division of Public and Behavioral Health (DPBH).
How to Register/Workshop Dates
The EMS Continuing Education Program has launched a new system for payments and registration (we now accept credit/debit card payments). Visit our new registration/payment site to view upcoming workshops, pay online and to reserve your spot.
In rare cases, classes may be canceled due to very low enrollment or weather conditions. If this occurs, students will be notified and will have the option of attending another class or request a refund within two weeks of cancellation.
Cancel more than three business days in advance of the class start date and you’ll receive a full refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. Cancel three working days or less and receive a 50% refund minus a $10 cancellation fee. Once class begins, however, refunds will not be given.
Inclement Weather Policy
If a workshop is cancelled due to an unexpected campus closure (i.e., weather conditions, etc.) all attempts will be made to reschedule the class. Only if the class cannot be rescheduled, a full refund will be issued. Please listen to the radio or check the College website in order to determine if the school has closed. Every effort will be made to inform you of a class cancellation due to inclement weather. If you are unable to attend due to the weather in your area—but the class has not been canceled—you are still responsible to contact the department 24 hours in advance of the class start date.
Please contact us with any questions you may have prior to registration.
