Continuing Education/: In July 2017 the State of Maryland adopted the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP). The NCCP model divides training requirements into three areas, the National Continued Competency Requirements (NCCR), Local Continued Competency Requirements (LCCR) and the Individual Continued Competency Requirements (ICCR). Each applicant recertifying their National Registry Paramedic certification will need the following:

• NCCR- 30 hours
• LCCR – 15 hours content as directed by MIEMSS
• ICCR – 15 hours

In order to meet the NCCR requirements for National Registry recertification, students must successfully complete EMS 305 and EMS 306.


Students must be a current, licensed Maryland advanced life support provider.
