    NREMT recert requirements California

    OK, potentially stupid question here... I've just passed my skills recert and turned in all the paperwork for my new EMT B license (exp date 3/31/12). In California, do I have to be employed in order to renew my NREMT (exp date also 3/31/12)? I have at least 33 CE credits, also. Thanks!
