EMS Renewal Training/Retraining Requirements

Listed on this page are the biennial renewal training requirements for First Responders and EMTs in Wisconsin. Listed are the minimum hours for the refresher courses as approved through the Wisconsin EMS Section. The training centers reserve the right to add hours to their courses as necessary to meet the educational objectives set forth in the curriculum and those required by any additional training included in the course (such as CPR, advanced skills, etc.). We will keep this EMS Refresher Course List (Exit DHS) as up to date as possible for everyone's use.

Note - If your license is expired, you have 6 months in which to renew your license by following the Late Renewal process.  After the 6 months have passed, you will need to follow the Reinstatement process.  Both of these processes are further explained on the Late Renewal webpage.
