Continuing Education

Completing Continuing Medical Education classes is the primary method that EMTs pursue in order to be eligible for recertification every two years. With Massachusetts' switch to the NREMT's Continued Competency Program (NCCP), BLS providers must now complete a total of 40 hours of continuing education classes broken down as follows:

- 20 hours of NATIONAL Continued Competency Requirements
- 10 hours of LOCAL Continued Competency Requirements
- 10 hours of INDIVIDUAL Continued Competency Requirements

NUEMS will offer continuing education classes that fulfill NCCP requirements. Any classes open to the public will be posted in the section below. For more information contact our Continuing Medical Education Coordinator at

We also partner with other local campus EMS services, such as Boston College's Eagle EMS, to offer an expanded array of continuing education topics. Groups of NU EMS members frequently attend these courses, a list of which can be found here.


NUEMS offers free continuing education to its active members. Details are sent to members via OrgSync. Please direct any questions to our training officers at

All Con-Ed classes that are open to the public will be posted here.
