Michigan EMT and AEMT Course Acceptance and Recertification Information
EMT Training Courses in MI

Q. Can I become a certified and licensed EMT or AEMT (Specialist) in Michigan if I pass the EMT & Fire Training EMT or AEMT Course?

A. Yes. The state of Michigan requires an EMT or AEMT trained outside of Michigan, to have National Registry Certification and an Out of State License if you are not trained in the state. Please call for details on how to get Out of State License after you are NREMT Certified so that you can apply for license in Michigan.

Q. Does Michigan require any extra EMT training that EFT does not provide in its course?

A. No.

Q. How do I recertify for EMS in the State of Michigan?

A. Michigan states, "During the three-year period of your licensure, you must either accrue Michigan approved continuing education credits, or complete a Michigan approved refresher course equivalent to your level of licensure in order to qualify for license renewal.  In addition, a copy of your CPR card meeting basic life support standards for a professional provider, as set forth by the American Heart Association and published in "Guidelines for Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiovascular Care", is required.  Effective January 1, 2014, the Department will only recognize the American Heart Association Healthcare Provider or the American Red Cross Professional Rescuer certifications.  One practical CE credit will be awarded in the Medical Category for proof of either certification."

Michigan State: "Any EMS program approved by CECBEMS shall be considered a Michigan-approved continuing education program." This counts for Continuing Education, but not the initial 30 Hour EMT Refresher. The EMT Refresher must be taken in the state in a live setting in order to count. If you need CE's we are CECBEMS approved and can help you with the Continuing Education that you need.

Q. I failed the NREMT exam 3 times already. Will your 24 Hour Online EMT Refresher allow me to retest with the NREMT?

 A. Yes. Once you pass our 24 Hour EMT Online Refresher course you will have 3 more opportunities at taking the NREMT Exam. The Course is accepted by the NREMT and covers all 24 hours of the Mandatory Core and Content required. To insure that you pass on your next attempt you can practice for the exam with our test prep site.

 Q. I failed the NRAEMT exam 3 times already. Will your 36 Hour Online AEMT Refresher allow me to retest with the NREMT?

 A. Yes. Once you pass our 36 Hour AEMT Online Refresher course you will have 3 more opportunities at taking the NRAEMT Exam. The Course is accepted by the NREMT for both AEMT and I85 and covers all 36 hours of the Mandatory Core and Flexible Core Content required. To insure that you pass on your next attempt you can practice for the exam with our test prep site.

 Q. Will your 36 Hour Online AEMT Refresher allow me to recertify as an Advanced EMT?<

 A. To recertify with the National Registry as an AEMT you will need to complete the 36 Hour AEMT Refresher, an additional 36 Continuing Education (CE’s) hours, and have a current CPR Certification. If you are doing this Refresher for State Licensure, please check with your state first to see if they will accept this 36 Hour Online AEMT Refresher that is CECBEMS approved and NREMT accepted.
