Elimination of Refresher Training

Advisory: Elimination of Refresher Training Courses


Attached please find an Advisory, clarifying that effective July 22, 2014, refresher training courses have been eliminated. OEMS has implemented its recently promulgated regulatory amendments regarding this type of training, and transitioned to require all EMTs to complete their continuing education by meeting the National Registry of EMTs’ Continued Competency Program, which has no refresher training component. OEMS will assist those EMTs who took a refresher training course prior to this date with applying them toward meeting the Continued Competency Program’s requirements. If you have any questions, contact Aaron Gettinger, EMS Training and Education Coordinator, at
