The Healthcare Provider and AED classes are a prerequisite of any initial EMT-basic certification class in the State of California and a requirement of employment for many hospital staff personnel.
The following courses will enable the EMT-Basic certified students to obtain continuing education and to take the practical skills exam required by the County of Los Angeles EMS Agency and the State of California for renewal of the EMT-Basic certification. These courses are designed to refresh didactic knowledge and practical skills the EMT-Basic learned in their initial certification course. At present, the County of Los Angeles EMS Agency requirements for certification renewal are: 24 hours of continuing education and successfully passing the State of California practical skills exam for EMT-Basic Recertification. These requirements change if your certification has lapsed or if you want to recertify your NREMT.
