EMT/ Paramedic Re-certification

Piedmont Community College has developed an effective procedure for re-certification.

A scope of practice examination and a review paperwork for the hours needed to re-certify are held on the first week of each month from 2 pm to 5 pm. Call for an appointment (336) 694-8052 and to request your transcripts.

A review of your continuing education record will be made to determine if you have enough hours. If you do not, you will have until your expiration date to complete them.

Please come within three months of when your certification expires. Doing so will help assure that you have completed all hours needed to re-certify in advance of your expiration date.
