Hello, I am a paramedic working for a non-critical care agency, who is looking into taking a critical care course and hoping to take the CCP-C test. I am currently thinking of taking this class for general knowledge and my own enjoyment. My department will pay for the class but cannot guarantee available funds to keep me current on CE and the renewal course that is required (can get very expensive to renew if department can't help me with the cost). I know you can re-certify by retaking the test and then not having to have the review class and CEs. This is what I currently do for my NREMT every two years. Retaking the NREMT exam for renewal is one thing, however I am sure the CCP-C is much more difficult. I am just curious how many of the CCP-C and FP-C out there that aren't currently with a critical care agency re-take the test to stay current. Is this a realistic plan? Thank you.
