EMS Continuing Education

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.

Course Description

There are no Courses for this period.

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 the state of Nevada.

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. Our courses are CAPCE-accredited, which allows for national use.

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.

Prerequisites

You must hold current EMT or AEMT certifications, unless you are required to take the refresher to get your certification up to date. Please contact the state of Nevada and/or NREMT for further information.

Course Cancellation Policies

Registration Cancellation/No-Show Policy

If you are unable to attend the course, you are responsible for contacting the Department of Public Safety at least 24 hours in advance; otherwise the full amount of tuition will be charged to the student/agency. Failure to come to class (no-show) will also result in being charged the full amount. Please contact us in order to give notice.

Class Cancellation Policy

Classes will be canceled if the minimum registrants are not reached (8 students) five days prior to class. If a class is canceled due to lack of enrollment (or other reasons) you will be notified and given the options of either attending another class of the same monetary value or obtaining a refund.

Inclement Weather Policy

If a workshop is canceled 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.
