Have distributive education limits been waived for 2022 recertification?

All EMTs, AEMTs and Paramedics who are due to recertify on March 31, 2022 will have no limits on Distributive Education. The same will apply to EMRs due to recertify on September 30, 2022. This allows all continuing education to be accomplished online through any state-accepted or CAPCE-accredited program or education site. Of course, in-person continuing education will also be accepted.
