Local Continuing Education (CE) Program Contacts

During National EMS week 2019, the Office of EMS announced that we had started the process of contracting with certified EMS educators across the state to be a part of a new, innovative approach to providing continuing education (CE) to both volunteer and career EMS providers across the Commonwealth.

Our educators work under the direction of the Division of Accreditation, Certification and Education to provide novel continuing education programming for the more than 36,000 certified EMS providers who serve the citizens of the Commonwealth of Virginia.  This new approach to continuing education will allow our educators the autonomy to conduct education on topics of local need and interest as well as ensure that a core set of courses covering state identified topics based on emerging trends and data are made available to EMS providers.

One of the great things about this new program is that our educators are prepared to come to you, at your agency, in your training room to conduct these programs.  These programs are offered free of charge and attendance is only limited if there are programs which require hands-on skills and equipment and/or resources are limited.

Our educators will be offering Category 1 CE that meets the requirements for the National Continued Competency Requirements (NCCR).  Some of the subjects that are identified through, at a minimum:

  1. Practice analysis being conducted by National Registry;
  2. The National Continued Competency requirements identified by National Registry;
  3. Information identified through the NEMSIS data and through the Field Bridge program with Virginia as areas that need focus;
  4. The NASEMSO EMS Guidelines;
  5. OEMS approved Designated Infection Control Officer (DICO) training;
  6. The Virginia Scope of Practice Procedures and Formulary as approved by the Virginia EMS Governor’s Advisory Board; and
  7. Deficiencies noted during psychomotor testing in Virginia
