New recertification process for NCCP models

Effective February 1, 2017, the NREMT implemented a new attestation method for recertification for those completing recertification using the NCCP 2012 and 2016 models. The new process allows providers to select which NCCP model they are using (either 2012 or 2016); after selecting a model, the system then auto-completes the requirements for the national component.

With this change, providers are no longer required to enter individual topic area courses in the national component.

This process only affects those completing recertification in states that use an NCCP model (including those states where the use of an NCCP model is optional). If you are not in a state that uses an NCCP model for recertification, you may disregard this email. 

If you have any questions, please contact the NREMT via email at


  • If the recertifying provider has taken a traditional refresher course, this will be accepted as either the 2012 or 2016 national component in qualifying states.
  • In the event of an audit, the provider must submit proof that all national component topics and subtopics were met, depending on which model they selected (2012 or 2016). 
Below is a walkthrough detailing the changes to entering continuing education via the newly implemented process. Again, these changes only impact those completing recertification in states using the NCCP recertification model (either 2012 or 2016). Please email with any questions. 


Providers will need to login to their accounts and select "My Certification" from the list of roles. They will then click “Manage Education." 


Providers will next need to select the appropriate NCCP model — either 2012 or 2016. Training officers overseeing education should inform providers of which model to use.
Please note: 
  • Training officers no longer need to input education in the national component.
  • Training officers may review which model a provider has selected on their application (either 2012 or 2016) from their roster.


Once providers have selected either the 2012 or 2016 NCCP model, the national component progress bar will automatically turn blue, indicating completion. The ability to add a class will remain, but neither training officers nor providers will not be required to add any additional courses.
