Traditional courses are no longer necessary. The Department of Health realizes there is no limit on the recertification process. In order to recertify, an expired EMT must submit a written request for recertification and the following information to the regional EMS:
- Proof of previous certification
- Proof of completion of the 24 continuing education hours (within the previous 36 months) and current CPR
- Completed DOH/EMS Student Application
- Completed criminal history form
CPR certification is good for 2 years. Therefore, it is necessary for certified EMTs to take another CPR class during each 3-year EMT certification period. You must send a copy of your current card, along with your EMT Certification Number to:
Emergency Medical Services Institute
250 Penn Avenue, Suite 2500
Pittsburgh, PA 15221-2166
Your card can also be faxed to EMSI at 412-242-7434.
