We are creating a new resource for the members of the training group. There is now a “Recertification” page on the main menu of the CCEMS web page. Please note the new CE hour matrix that the training group came up with in spring of 2016.
There is a firm roll out date of January 1, 2017 and a soft date effective now.
The soft date means don’t take any classes that don’t count from this point onward and expect them to count. Ex: Don’t take first aid in November and expect it to count. If you have previously taken something that may not count but you are planning on using it for CE hours, it will be on a case by case basis between now and 01/01/2017.

A county wide assessment of training has identified that oxygen is misunderstood and misused by many providers.
This lecture will address the following: “Is oxygen the most misused medication in EMS? Do you think oxygen can’t hurt? Find out how we are harming patients with oxygen. Many myths about oxygen will be explored in this session. Participants will come away with a much deeper understanding of who it helps, who it hurts and why. ” This lecture will be appropriate for any provider that administers oxygen. 2 hours of continuing education credits will be available.
Dinner will be provided.
An RSVP will be available in the future.
