EMT Integrated Refresher Program

The refresher class is designed to refresh your knowledge and skills needed to recertify your EMT certification.

In 2012, changes were made to the EMT Refresher program. The old CORE 13 has been replaced with three 8 hour core refresher programs:

CORE "A" - Airway

CORE "B" - Medical

CORE "C" - Trauma


These courses may be taken in any order and need to be completed prior to your expiration date along with your 24 elective CEUs needed to recertify. This program includes classroom instruction and practical skills. In order to successfully complete this course, the student must attend ALL sessions, obtain at least a 70% on all tests, & successfully pass the skills stations.


No walk-ins will be accepted.

Tuition: $80.00 per class


Expired EMTs or NJ RNs: If you are an expired EMT and would like to reactive your certification or a NJ Registered Nurse (RN) looking to obtain your EMT certification, you must complete ALL three CORE refreshers and challenge the NJ State Exam.



We strongly recommend a textbook for this program. The textbook is $65.00 and can be purchased during office hours. The tuition exemption form does NOT cover book fees. We suggest that you purchase the book prior to class. You will have at least one 25-question written evaluation. There will also be practical skills evaluations. You must complete both to receive credit for the day.  The book we use is: AAOS EMT Transition Manual (ISBN# 9781449609153).


For Class A - Please review Chapters 5, 6, 7, & 20 prior to class.

For Class B - Please review Chapters 7, 8, 9, 10, 11, 12, 13, 14, & 16 prior to class.

For Class C - Please review Chapters 15, 17, 18, & 19 prior to class.


Moodle Account:

We have recently adopted an electronic polling/survey question and answer recertification program. Please go to the Moodle site and create an account for yourself. Once you have created an account, you will receive an email asking you to verify your Moodle account. Click on the link in the email and verify your Moodle account. Please remember your username and password, as you will be asked to log into your account when you attend class. It is imperative that you do this before coming to class, so that the class can begin in a timely manner!
