NCCP Frequently Asked Questions
Q: How do current EMRs and AEMTs "opt-in" to the NCCP in the absence of the self-assessment guides?
A: The NREMT is currently developing a drop-down box that will be located on your online renewal application screen that will allow you to select whether you wish to opt-in to the NCCP or continue on with the traditional 72-hour renewal method.
Q: If I choose to opt-in, can I change my mind later?
A: No. Once you opt-in to the NCCP program you will be locked into that program.
Q: Can 2016 expiration providers utilize the NCCP for the remainder of the current cycle?
A: Yes. The NREMT is currently developing an opt-in drop-down box that will be found when you
login to your NREMT online account which will allow you to opt-in to the NCCP program.
Q: I already have continuing education hours entered into the NREMTsystem under the traditional renewal method. How do I port those hours over to the new NCCP system?
A: The NREMT has developed a process that allows for an easy porting of hours from the traditional system to the new NCCP system. Instructions are located above in the "Instructional Documents" section, titled "How to Move Hours Guide".
Q: Has the NREMT identified the National topics for AEMTs?
A: AEMTs will need to do the EMT National topics, plus 5 hours of ALS. They will then need to do the Local Hours that are identified by the state and/or local jurisdiction(s), and the individual hours in any topics they choose.
Q: Has the NREMT identified the National topics for EMRs?
A: The NREMT
is currently working to identify the National topics for the EMR level. Since EMRs have until September 30, 2015 to renew, the NREMT hopes to have those topics completed by then.
