National Registry Recertification Information for 2023
The Guide to Completing National Registry Recertification Application (below) has been developed
to assist Virginia providers who are certified with National Registry to complete their recertification application based on the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP). All providers recertifying in the 2023 certification cycle are utilizing the 2016 NCCP requirements.
Please follow this step-by-step guide when completing your National Registry recertification application. All answers highlighted in BOLD must be the response you provide to each question. Providers who do not maintain their Virginia CE report in alignment with their National Registry certification cycle will not be able to utilize this process.
Please remember to use the ‘Recertify Me’ option in your Virginia EMS portal after your National Registry has been recertified to maintain your CE report in alignment with your National Registry certification cycle.
Note: If you are selected for audit, please notify Debbie Akers (Deborah.T.Akers@vdh.virginia.gov) and she will generate the verification certificate if possible. If your Virginia CE report is not aligned with your National Registry certification cycle, it may not be possible for our office to issue the verification.
