What is accepted education?

There are several types of accepted education that include, but are not limited to, state-recognized continuing education for renewal of EMS license, CAPCE-accredited education, college courses, standardized courses, EMS initial education, and most healthcare-related education. If choosing to renew your certification, you can do so by using continuing education. 

 

With accepted education, it is important to remember that education must follow the National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) limits for distributive education.  

 

Plus, education must be patient care-related, EMS-related, and within your scope of practice as an EMS provider.
