Thank you everyone for your responses!
Based on these responses, I decided to go ahead and recert my CCEMTP.
I just received my new card this morning, so I'm good until Nov. 2026.
I really do appreciate everyone's responses!
My agency is on the East Coast and provided the CCEMTP course for those of us that were going to work on our CCT, starting in 2002, when I took the course.
I will say that the CCEMTP is/was a good introduction to CCT, and I learned a lot from it, when I took it in 2002.
I have been FP-C...
I have maintained my CCEMTP (2002) for 21 years and am now considering letting it lapse.
I also have, and maintain, my FP-C and CCP-C, but I have maintained my CCEMTP as I heard (however I can't find hard evidence to confirm) that some states accept/require CCEMTP for their states Critical Care...

I have used it since 2020 (I believe, when they started it?) and it was very helpful.
It let me purchase some things (masks, etc) that weren't available to "regular" Amazon members.
I had never used Amazon before this.

You can never go wrong by doing what's right for your patient.

If they are paid personnel, the situation needs to be reported to their supervisor...
If you do not have a copy, might I suggest the book Field Training Officer: Tips and Techniques for FTOs, Preceptors, and Mentors by Barry Eberly and Bruce Nepon which might be a helpful resource for you in your search.
I wish you luck.
