Yes, the NREMT accepts continuing education from an organization that is accredited by CAPCE. NREMT also accepts State Approved CE, and many states will accept our American CME Free CE courses for this. Please refer to our Accepted States page to locate your state’s EMS agency and requirements. Please contact the NREMT for further questions or for the amount of credits you may take.
American CME has put markers in place so that if you have to leave or your internet connection fails, you will be able to start your education where you left off. You will see a “Fast Forward to my last position” just under the video. The video will have to buffer first, so please wait 30 to 60 seconds, depending on your internet speed.
In order to properly view our CMEs, it is strongly recommended to have a high speed internet connection. A slow connection will result in loading issues during your course. It helps to close any windows or tabs with websites that may also be streaming videos.
On our Accepted States page you will find a list of states in which American CME is approved. We update this page as we receive new information about state requirements, so check back often, and as a best practice, refer to your state EMS website for the most current information about your state CE requirements.
