Lapsed EMT Certificates

LAPSED CERTIFICATES - An individual may not work as an EMT or represent him/herself as an EMT with a lapsed certificate. There are no extensions. Once a certificate has expired, an individual will need to:

  • For a card expired six months or less, complete 24 hours of continuing education plus the skills competency verification test

  • For a card expired more than six months but less than a year, complete 36 hours of continuing education plus the skills competency verification test

  • For a card expired for more than one year but less than two years, complete 48 hours of CE plus the written NREMT exam and a skills competency verification test - and redo your Live Scan, which will include both California Department of Justice and FBI reports.

  • NREMT link.

  • For a card expired two years or more, retake an entire EMT course.
