National Continued Competency Program

Important Notice
All Nationally Certified EMS personnel due to recertify in 2019, or after, are required to utilize the NCCP.

What is the National Continued Competency Program?

The National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) was constructed using methodology similar to that of the American Board of Medical Specialties requirements and streamlines the recertification process into three strategic categories of continuing education: National, Local, and Individual.

The National Continued Competency Program is designed to encourage Nationally Certified EMS personnel to pursue life-long education while also providing state and local agencies the freedom to customize education to meet local operational needs.
