2012 NCCP Content

In 2012, the NREMT introduced a new recertification model, the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP). Nationally Certified EMS personnel recertifying in 2017, or 2018, and in a NCCP approved state, may utilize either the 2012 Revision of the National Content Guide or the 2016 Revision of the National Content Guide.

2012: Standardized Course Reference Guide

Many of the standard continuing education classes taken by EMS professionals will satisfy portions of the national component of the NCCP recertification process. To learn how a specific course integrates into the 2016 NCCP national content model, click on the course name.


Remember, the quick reference guides below indicate how an approved course fulfills the National Component requirement. For example: if you take an eight hour course, it may fulfill three hours of the specific national content. The remaining five hours of education can be applied toward local and/or individual content.
