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 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).
