CMTE Renewal Pathway with Capstone Project Option 

We commend you for your commitment to excellence in the field of medical transport! Your dedication is evident by your continued efforts to expand your knowledge base and further your professional development and growth.

The Re-certification Process

Your CMTE credential is valid for 3 years during which time you must earn the required professional credits (30 MEUs) and submit them to AAMS on a completed CMTE Re-certification Application in order to re-certify for another 3 years. For example, if your original certification was earned in April 2019, your initial certification would run from your certification date through December 2022. Your recertification application and payment would need to be into the AAMS office by December 31, 2022. Your first re-certification would begin January 2023. More information CMTE renewal

NOTE: Payment of $255.00 must be included with the application as well as any and all supporting documentation to verify that you fulfilled the requirements for attaining the appropriate number of MEU’s. 

60-Day Grace Period
Because circumstances occur that might cause you to be delayed in submitting your paperwork for recertification by the deadline, AAMS has instituted a 60-day grace period.

With this grace period, you may take an extra 60 days past the deadline to get your paperwork and payment into the AAMS office. In the example above, where an initial certification was earned in May 2019 and expires on December 2022, a recertification application may be submitted during the 60-day grace period up until March 1, 2023. Please note that the grace period is not a time for you to take classes or try to accumulate more MEUs. This is simply a period for you to compile all of your paperwork and your payment to send into the office.

NOTE: There is a penalty of an extra $155 charged for those submitting their paperwork during the 60 day grace period. Thus, the total cost for recertification during the grace period will be $400.
