EMS Conferences

Educational courses offered through EMS conferences can be used towards your renewal requirements. Not all education offered at conferences may be eligible for use towards your renewal. Review the articles below for more information. 

Education from the same conference attended in different years can be used as long as the continuing education hours are not considered duplicate courses.  Please make sure if the name of the course is "Dinner with Mr. Peanut" that you include a clear description of the course and how it would apply to EMS when entering the course to your transcript.
