Recertification Failed Audit

Recertification Failed Audit

If you have been randomly selected for an audit, and receive notice of a Failed Audit, this means that you did not meet the necessary requirements.  A failed audit means that your recertification application will not be processed, and your certification will expire. Once your certification expires you can choose to regain it by following the lapsed certification process. 

All applications selected for audit for EMR providers will be reviewed by October 31 of their renewal cycle.

All applications selected for audit for EMT, AEMT, and Paramedic providers will be reviewed by April 30. 

Final notifications for audits are sent out at the close of a recertification season.
