National Registry Recertification Information for 2021
The Guide to Completing National Registry Recertification 2.0 Application (below) has been developed and approved by National Registry 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 starting in the 2020 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: Recertification Cycle Start Date will be unique to each provider based on when National Registry issues your new certification. Hours accumulated after that start date can be utilized toward the next certification cycle.
