Recertification Process

Paramedics and Emergency Medical Technicians

At least 60 days before your certificate expires, the department will mail you a renewal notification postcard to your last known mailing address of record. You will have until midnight, Eastern Time, on the day your certificate expires to renew. Failure to renew 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 renew 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.

The department has made every effort to include the information you need to renew your license on this website. You can visit our Help Center, Resources, and Applications and Forms page for frequently asked questions, links, forms, and other helpful information. If you have additional questions about your renewal process, please contact a renewal specialist.
