CLARKSDALE – Are you an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) or Paramedic in need of renewing you credentials with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT)?

Great new—Coahoma Community College will be offering updated NREMT refresher courses on several dates, beginning in Jan. 2017.

“Every two years an EMT or paramedic has to renew their credential with the national registry,” said CCC EMT Program Director Rhett Nelson. “The state as adopted a new refresher model whereby EMTs can attend three of four days and paramedics must attend all four days to receive credit for a refresher course. We’re offering the courses on a variety of dates in an effort to accommodate all work schedules.”

In addition to offering courses in Clarksdale, a course will also be offered in Tunica County to accommodate EMTs and paramedics in the North Mississippi and Tennessee area.

According to Nelson, individuals have the option of attending some courses then returning to compete the remainder of the courses at a later date.

Here’s a breakdown of the schedule:

9 a.m. Jan. 19-22 at CCC’s Robert “Brick” Mason Health Sciences, located at 901 Ohio Ave., Clarksdale, Miss.

9 a.m. Jan. 26-29 at CCC’s Robert “Brick” Mason Health Sciences, located at 901 Ohio Ave., Clarksdale, Miss.

9 a.m. Feb. 2-5 in Tunica County, Miss. Location TBA.

The courses are $40 per day.
