Ensure you are logged on to your NREMT Medical Director account, from the Medical Director dashboard select skills verifications.

Select either approve or deny and submit. An individuals skills competency can only be denied after the recertification application has been submitted.  If an individual hasn’t submitted a recertification application you will see Provider’s Recert Application has not been submitted yet when you roll over their deny button.
