Requirements 

Current certificates expire at midnight, Eastern Time, on December 01, 2018.

To ensure you receive your recertification notification from the department, your current mailing address must be on file. Failure to recertify an active certificate by the expiration date will result in the certificate being placed in an involuntary inactive status. Failure by an involuntary inactive certificate holder to recertify within four years after the expiration of the current certification cycle renders the certificate null and void without any further action by the board or the department.

Licensees requesting to reactivate their license from inactive or retired status are required to pay additional fees and comply with specific continuing education requirements. Please contact the board office at mqa.emt-paramedics@flhealth.gov to request your reactivation requirements.

The department will recertify your certificate upon receipt of:
  • Completed renewal application
  • Required fees
  • 30 hour refresher course that includes 2 hours in pediatric emergencies
