UH EMS Institute Paramedic Refresher Registration
All form fields are mandatory. The refresher classes are subject to additional requirements which will be communicated to you along with information on how to access the classes. Fees apply to non-UH affiliated providers. Each student application will be verified prior to class access being granted.

The Paramedic Online Refresher comprises both the State of Ohio and NREMT recertification hours. As part of the UHEMS Institute Online Refresher, an ACLS, and PALS certification is required. These two courses allow for hours earned. If the student does not have an active ACLS and/or PALS card, an initial course will be offered. If the student has an active ACLS and/or PALS card, a refresher course is required for completion, which will be offered during the scheduled course.
Below you will find the State of Ohio and NREMT Recertification requirements.
