NREMT NCCP Compliant Paramedic Refresher


In Compliance with CDC and State of Connecticut guidance for social protocol during the Coronavirus (COVID -19) emergency, we have postponed all classes the New Britain EMS Academy offers until a time which it is deemed appropriate to reopen to the public. In the interim, check out our NCCR approved distance learning options, both self-paced and virtual instructor led.

We are committed to the long term success of all our students and continue to stand committed to fulfill our obligations for current students and those to come. Foremost we value the health and safety of our students, staff, families, and our community.


Current Nationally Registered Paramedics are expected to renew their Registry following the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) model, or through challenging the cognitive exam.

The Paramedic National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 60 hours of continuing education to renew. The model requires continuing education in three components: (1) a national component, (2) a local/state component, and (3) an individual component. Broken down as follows:

- National Component = 30 hours (up to 10 distributive) of approved continuing education.

- Local/state component = 15 hours (Up to 10 hours distributive) CAPCE or state approved content


- Individual component = 15 hours (Up to 15 distributive) CAPCE or state approved For more information check out NCCP Requirements We offer two solutions to your paramedic continuing education needs, whether for your medical control requirements or National Registry:
