EMS Educator Updates will meet the seminar requirements for recertification for Education Coordinators and re-endorsement of ALS-Coordinators and Emergency Operations Instructors. While only one update is required per certification cycle, educators are strongly encouraged to attend annually to see the newest content presented by the Office.

Please Note: Dates, times and locations are subject to change. Specific room information will be added when confirmed. The Office of EMS depends on the graciousness of organizations to host these events. A special thank you to all of those who have offered and hosted.
