Using Recert to Track Your Recertification Progress
Prehospital recertification requirements are constantly evolving and can be difficult to track. Recert is an online continuing education service designed to make meeting prehospital recertification requirements more efficient. Recert offers engaging courseware mapped to a personalized recertification roadmap.
User-friendly dashboards help you manage your professional portfolio, while keeping you focused on what’s important—your training.
Viewing Your Recert Dashboard
1. After you log in via psglearning.com or jblearning.com, click the RECERT tab on the My Account page to view the Recert Dashboard.
The Recert Dashboard displays your progress towards recertification.
In the example above, “Tim” has completed 7% of his required hours, or 3.5 out of 50 hours required for his New Hampshire AEMT recertification. Note that hours can be fulfilled either online or in-person, although there is a limit to how many hours you can receive from online training. For example, 28.50 of Tim’s 50 recertification hours can be completed online.
Note It is up to the user to find and complete the training necessary for recertification. Courses are available via the Jones & Bartlett Learning Public Safety Group’s Recert course library, but you can also schedule a “non-Recert” course, which is any course or activity that helps to fulfill your recertification requirements.
Adding a Non-Recert Course
1. To add a non-Recert course, from the Recert Dashboard, click the Schedule & Add a Course tab.
2. To the right of SCHEDULE, click the ADD A NON-RECERT COURSE button. A dialog box opens, where you can enter details about the course.
3. In the Add a Non-Recert Course section, fill in the following fields. Note that fields marked with an asterisk (*) are required.
- Course Name*
- Start Date*
- Start Time
- End Time
4. In the Address Details section, provide the course’s location (if desired).
5. In the Course Details section, click the Category list arrow and select a category—for example, Cardiovascular.
Note The Recert interface is contextual, which means the categories and topics that display will vary based on the state and certification information in your profile. In the example shown below, the category and the topic lists are based on recertification requirements for a New Hampshire AEMT NCCP 2016 recertification.
6. Click the Topic list arrow and then select a topic. Once you select a Topic, Recert displays the following message: Recertification requirements may vary by state, region, or agency. You are responsible for confirming that specific continuing education courses and activities satisfy your requirements.
Note It’s your responsibility to confirm which continuing education courses meet your individual recertification requirements, as they may vary by state, region, or agency.
7. Enter the Hours Fulfilled, which is the number of continuing education hours you would like to designate for the selected topic.
Warning If you type a number greater than the maximum required fulfilled hours for a topic, Recert displays a warning message.
8. Select the Course Type: either In-Person or Online.
9. Click the Add New Topic The course, with one topic, appears at the bottom of the dialog box.
10. To add another topic to the course, repeat steps 5 through 9, above.
11. Repeat until you have entered all of the desired course details (categories and topics).
12. Click the Save
Recert redisplays the Schedule & Add a Course tab on the Dashboard. Note that at this point, you have only scheduled the course. You have not indicated that you have completed the course.
13. To mark a course as complete, click the blue MARK AS COMPLETE button.
14. You can alternatively mark a course as complete within the Edit a Non-Recert Course screen. Click Edit on the top right corner of the In-Person course.
15. In the Edit a Non-Recert Course screen, click the Mark as Complete check box.
16. At the bottom of the dialog box, click the Save button.
Note Some recertification requirements require verification of skills competency. For these topics (with a skills component), you need to upload proof that you have demonstrated competency in the related skill before the course hours will display in your Recert dashboard. If a non-Recert course is used to fulfill a topic with a skills component, marking the non-Recert course as complete is not sufficient. You must also upload a skills verification sheet.
Uploading Skills Verification and Obtaining a Certificate
Uploading Skills Verification
For topics with a skills component, you will need to uploaded proof of skills competency before the completed course hours will display in your Recert dashboard.

1. From the Dashboard, click the Recert Plan tab to display your recertification progress.
2. Expand the category and topic for the course you just added by clicking the plus sign to the left of each level until the topics are displayed.

Topics that have been completed are flagged with a trophy icon. In the example below, the Stroke topic is 100% complete.
