Paramedic Refresher Course Description:
The curriculum guidelines will be the objectives of the 2001 US DOT EMT-Paramedic Refresher Course. The program will consist of a Monday-Thursday lecture-style component, followed by two OPTIONAL days where participants may take ACLS and PALS refresher courses.
Completion of the lecture component will meet all NREMT-P mandatory and flexible core content areas with the exception of 8 hours in airway, breathing, cardiology and 8 hours in OB/Peds. If participants elect to take the optional ACLS and PALS refresher modules then ALL hours will be met for the required 48 hour paramedic refresher course.

Online EMS CE
In an effort to meet all educational needs of our customers, Southeastern Emergency Equipment has teamed up with Medic CE to offer online EMS education. Medic CE is a CECBEMS accredited provider and offers high-quality, easy-to-use, and affordable online continuing education for all levels of EMS personnel. Courses offered through Southeastern are at a discounted rate and are designed to compliment our classroom based Paramedic Refresher Program.
The NREMT allows 10 hours of the required 48 hour refresher to be completed online and 12 hours of the required additional 24 to be completed online. For more information on courses offered through Southeastern to compliment our traditional Paramedic Refresher Program please click on the Medic CE logo below.
Paramedic refresher course instructors will be content area experts and will consist of EMT-Ps, RNs, PAs, and MDs.
This course is intended for NREMT-Paramedic certified providers who are preparing for NREMT-P recertification and need CE topics/hours to meet refresher requirements. It is also appropriate for individuals who simply need EMT-P level CE for any reason. NC participants should ensure that their EMS System will accept CE from an outside entity.
NORTH CAROLINA PERSONNEL ONLY: If your NC EMT-P credential has EXPIRED you will need to find a refresher program that includes the NCOEMS mandated Technical Scope of Practice Evaluation (TSOPE). This program does not include a TSOPE practical component, and thus cannot be used to renew an EXPIRED credential.
If you do not have a provider and need to re-credential your NC Paramedic we have a mechanism in place to assist you with that. Please contact us for further information.
This continuing education activity is approved by Southeastern Emergency Equipment, an organization accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS). The NREMT accepts, and advocates, CECBEMS approved continuing education. Not every state accepts CECBEMS approval - please check with your respective state if you have questions.
In addition, this course is approved by and will be coordinated through the Franklin County EMS Advanced Education Institution (AEI) in Louisburg, NC. The Franklin County AEI is approved by the NC Office of EMS and is authorized to provide any level of initial or refresher EMS course.
All AHA components will be coordinated through the Southeastern Emergency Equipment CTC and will follow AHA guidelines. The ACLS and PALS courses require successful completion of a written and practical component.
