Online Continuing Education Courses
Click on each of the courses below for more information.
Please take note that the courses will require the full number of hours listed for each course. To protect the integrity of online training, the settings will not allow you to speed up videos, skip through them, etc. If you click away from the video to another window, tab, etc. the video will pause and will not continue playing. It is recommended that you have a writing utensil and piece of paper to take notes on the videos so you will be prepared to answer the multiple choice questions after the videos. You must achieve an 80% on the questions to move to the next video (but you will have unlimited attempts on the questions).
Upon successful completion of the videos and questions, you will be given access to your completion certificate. After purchasing a course, you can always continue where you left off by clicking on "Current Students" and logging in. You will have access to the course and all of its contents for one year.
Courses can be purchased individually at the listed prices, or students can save a total of $25 by purchasing the full access to all 6 courses for $205.

EMT Recertification Requirements
As of April 16, 2022, the state of Montana changed their EMT license renewal requirements to match those of the National Registry's (NREMT) National Continuing Competency Program (NCCP). Future EMT license renewals in the state of Montana now only require applicants to show proof of NREMT certification.* In other words, as long as EMTs complete the 40 hours of continuing education (CEs) required every two years by the NREMT, they will be able to also renew their Montana EMT license. A 24-hour EMT refresher is no longer required. Instead, the NREMT and the state of Montana now require the following to be completed every 2 years**:
- 20 hours CEs National Component
- 1.5 hrs. Airway/Respiration/Ventilation
- 1.5 hrs. Trauma
- 6 hrs. Medical
- 5 hrs. Operations
- 6 hrs. Cardiovascular
- 10 hours CEs Local/State Component
- Check with your agency and state, but these hours are commonly left up to the EMT to choose what they would like to study. If you are an inactive EMT in the state of Montana, these hours can cover anything from the EMT curriculum of your choosing.
- 10 hours CEs Individual Component
- These hours are your choice from anything in the EMT curriculum
These 40 hours can be completed by attending continuing education trainings, helping teach EMT classes/skills, some college coursework, etc. Check the NREMT's Recertification Guide here to determine whether something "counts" as continuing education.
Fight-or-Flight is offering online continuing education recertification classes covering each of the national component categories and one 20-hour in-person "refresher" course covering the National Component over a Saturday and Sunday March 11 - 12, 2023. EMTs may also complete the in-person refresher AND the 20 hours offered through online continuing education to fulfill the total 40 hours of continuing education.
*If you took the Dynamic Path Exam in 2018-2022 and do not have NREMT certification, your lead instructor or medical director will need to sign a certificate stating you've completed the National Continuing Competency Program requirements listed above (the 40 hours of continuing education).
**Alternatively, EMTs may recertify by retaking the NREMT exam every two years.
