EMT Transition Program (NJ EMT Refresher Course "D")
This program is approved for 8.0 CEUs
in either the Core or Elective category by the NJ Department of
and Senior Services--Office of Emergency Medical
Services . The National
Registry of EMTs
accepts NJ CEUs on a one-for-one basis. The Commonwealth of
accepts NJ elective EMT CEUs via a special
form which is also available upon request.
NJ EMTs may assign CEU earned from this course entirely to
either the core or elective category, but not both. It
should be used in the same category as the 16 CEU EMT Review Program to
complete the 24 CEU required in that particular category.
The EMT Transition Program is a NJ-adapted course
intended to update the currently practicing NJ EMT-Basic to the new
knowledge and skills of the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)
described in the 2009
National EMS Education Standards published by NHTSA Office of EMS.
It presents the new skills and knowledge that some providers may have
been exposed to in practice and continuing education, but not
officially included in the “old” 1994 USDOT EMT-Basic National Standard
Curriculum. Successful completion of this update does not
automatically initiate a new EMT card, but does permit the credentialed
(authorized) practitioner to immediately operate under the revised EMT
scope of practice. It may be used by EMT-Bs who have
accumulated at least 16 “old” EMT-Basic Core CEUs to complete the 24
Core CEUs requirement for recertification. This is program
satisfies the National Registry of EMTs requirement for a “a state
approved EMT-Basic to Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) transition
It also provides eligibility to complete NJ EMT
recertification via a new method of written and practical
re-examination. (Not yet released.)
