Is there special software or equipment that I need on my computer to take the online live streaming classes?


You do not need a webcam or a microphone.  You will see and hear Jon Puryear during the lectures but he can't see or hear you.  You will be logged into his Virtual Instructor Led Online Live Classroom in a chat room.  The chat room is Java enabled program (free download from Java) and the live streaming video is an Adobe Flash Player (free download from Adobe).  You may take the classes from any computer with internet service, Adobe Flash player, and Java enabled.  For iPad users, the online live classroom is streamed using iStream showing the video and the chat room.

No.  Handouts and instructions will be emailed to you after registration and payment have been made and one week prior to the beginning of the class.



Can I perform the online recorded classes at my own convenience?


Yes.  For the 1 hour CE class LMS, it is free to register and view all of the classes.  You may then enroll and pay for the class you wish to take.  For the 24 hour EMT Refresher CE Package and the 48 hour Paramedic Refresher CE Package, you must register and pay for the course and then you will be emailed instructions on how to complete the course.  Each individual class in the course will issue its own CE certificate that you may save and print for your records and send to the Agency of your choice.



I am trying to pass the NREMT written exam and would like to take a prep class to help me learn the material.  Which class would you recommend I take?


There is a 16 hour NREMT Prep Class/Review that is an online recorded class that may be taken at your own convenience.  There is an EMT version and a Paramedic version (Advanced usually take the Paramedic version as there currently isn't a specific Advanced prep course).  This is a great review where Jon Puryear teaches the information beginning with Operations and ending with Pediatrics so that you "get it" and to help you identify where your strengths and weaknesses are.  Both of these courses were specifically designed to help students pass the NREMT written exam.  You may find more information about this course at www.nationalregistryprep.com.  If you feel that you need a more in depth review course, then we recommend you take the online recorded refresher course (EMT and Paramedic versions).



Will my State accept your CE hours for my State recertification?


All CE classes/courses are taught and award CE hours through State of Texas CE Program 600232 Jon Puryear CE.  You will have to check with your State EMS Agency and ask them if they accept out of state Texas CE Program hours.



Are your classes/courses CECBEMS approved?


No.  However the NREMT accepts State Approved Virtual Instructor Led Online Live Classroom (F5 category) CE hours, refreshers, and transition courses.  The live streaming courses do not have to be CECBEMS accredited for these types of CE hours.  The recorded online CE classes/packages award State of Texas CE Program CE hours.
