NREMT Releases Recert 2.0 for Improved CE Tracking
COLUMBUS, OH—The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) announced Sept. 8 the launch of Recert 2.0, the largest update ever of the NREMT’s recertification system.
Along with popularly requested features such as an expanded certification dashboard and the ability for EMS personnel to affiliate with multiple EMS agencies, Recert 2.0 introduces the EMS Education Transcript, a powerful tool for tracking, storing, and managing continuing education.
A secure hub for all of an EMS professional’s educational achievements, the EMS Education Transcript allows a user to add and import an unlimited number of continuing education entries and create an individualized, comprehensive professional record.
"Emergency medical services is a rapidly evolving profession, and a provider’s ability to always provide safe and competent care in the out-of-hospital setting often depends on robust continuing education," said NREMT Interim Executive Director Drew Dawson. "Recert 2.0 was developed with the importance of career-long development and learning in mind."
Whether taken online, at a conference or at a university, courses on any EMS topic can be easily added to the EMS Education Transcript. Users can upload supporting documentation (including PDFs and images of course certificates) and add important data such as the location and date of the course. To make each transcript uniquely personal, users are also able to add custom notes on each course.
Courses, certificates and other credentials entered in the EMS Education Transcript can then be easily mapped to a provider’s NREMT recertification application. In most instances, the NREMT.org system will apply transcript entries to the correct recertification category automatically.
"It is our hope that Recert 2.0 will become an invaluable tool for EMS professionals both during their NREMT recertification periods and on every other day of their career," said NREMT Chief Information Officer Donnie Woodyard.
All Recert 2.0 features are available immediately and at no cost to all nationally certified EMS personnel. The new recertification application will be available during the upcoming recertification period beginning Oct. 1.
