WAKE FOREST, N.C. — Todd Baker, Director of Training and Education for Southeastern Emergency Equipment, an international distributor of emergency medical equipment and supplies, has announced the center will offer the next Paramedic Refresher Course July 25-31, 2011. The Paramedic Refresher Course will be held at the Southeastern Emergency Equipment Training & Education Center, located at 5762 Hwy 96W in Youngsville, N.C. just North of Raleigh.
The Paramedic Refresher Course curriculum guidelines are taken directly from the 2001 US DOT EMT-Paramedic Refresher Course. The program will consist of a Monday-Thursday lecture-style component, followed by three optional days where participants may take ACLS, PALS, and ITLS refresher courses.
Completion of the lecture component will meet all NREMT-P mandatory and flexible core content areas with the exception of 8 hours in airway, breathing, cardiology and 8 hours in OB/Peds. If participants elect to take the optional ACLS and PALS refresher modules, then all hours will be met for the required 48 hour paramedic refresher course. If participants elect to take the ITLS refresher module then those hours may be applied toward the additional 24 hours that are mandated by the NREMT. Completion of the entire program will result in participants departing with 56 hours of CE and renewed ACLS, PALS, and ITLS provider cards.
The course schedules and length include 32 hours on Mon-Thurs, July 25-28 from 8:00am-5:00pm each day for the lecture/lab component; 8 hours on Friday, July 29 from 8:00am-5:00pm for the ACLS refresher; 8 hours on Saturday, July 30 from 8:00am-5:00pm for the PALS refresher; and 8 hours on Sunday, July 31 from 8:00am-5:00pm for the ITLS refresher.

“In addition to our normal schedule, we want to meet needs expressed in feedback from previous paramedic refresher courses by offering online EMS education,” said Baker. “We have teamed up with Medic CE to offer high-quality, easy-to-use and affordable online continuing education for all levels of EMS personnel.”
Medic CE courses offered through Southeastern are designed to complement our classroom-based Paramedic Refresher Program. The NREMTP allows 10 hours of the required 48 hour refresher to be completed online and 12 hours of the required additional 24 to be completed online.
