Paramedic Core Competency

National Continued Competency Requirements (NCCR) are determined by the NREMT Board of Directors based upon widespread input from EMS researchers, EMS physician and EMS provider stakeholders. The NCCR comprises 50% of the overall requirements necessary to recertify. Topics in the NCCR are chosen among the following: evidence-based medicine, any changes in the National EMS Scope of Practice Model, science-related position papers that affect EMS patient care, topics which cover patient care tasks that have low frequency yet high criticality, and articles which improve knowledge to deliver patient care. The NREMT will provide the educational materials for this component to the EMS community as part of their mission – to protect the public. *This program is used in place of DOT 48 hour Paramedic refresher.
