We still have Sponsors that did not show up for any of the four Con Ed Link Sessions - I can not approve your course registrations until you attend a training. I understand that things happen, which is why I schedule two more sessions - this will be it until after April, this means if you do not make one of these two sessions - you will not be able to run con ed classes until you do (sometime after April).
Two sessions are:
Nov. 18, 2016 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM - EMMCO Office
Dec. 2, 2016 1:00 PM to 3:00 PM - EMMCO Office
Please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org and let me know which one you will be at. I did send emails out today for this, if you did not get an email, this means you have not updated your Sponsor Information, I will need you to do that as well.
Please make note that con ed requirements have changed, due to the rules & regulations that were released 10/12/2013. Begining with January 01, 2017 expiring practitioners - you will need to complete the following credits to renew:
EMR 16 Total Credits with 12 being Clinical Patient Care credits
EMT 24 Total Credits with 18 being Clinical Patient Care credits
AEMT 36 Total Credits with 27 being Clinical Patient Care credits
Paramedics 36 Total Credits with 27 being Clinical Patient Care credits
PHRN 36 Total Credits with 27 being Clinical Patient Care credits
PHE 36 Total Credits with 27 being Clinical Patient Care credits
PHP 36 Total Credits with 27 being Clinical Patient Care credits
Please log into the EMS Registry to make sure you have the required credits.
For those that haven't, please note that due staff having large projects this year, including Symposium 2017, we will be unable to schedule 1 on 1 training for Con Ed Link until after April. If you wish to continue as a con ed sponsor, you need to attend one of the below trainings, not attending will impact your ability to get con ed processed. The final day for me to process the way we have been will be Oct. 31 by 4 PM. Anything received after this will not be processed unless you use the Con Ed Link system.
Reminder cards have been sent out for January 1, 2017 Practitioners. If you do not receive your reminder card by Oct. 15, 2016 and intend on keeping your certification, please contact our office to update your information. Those that expire in this quarter have been posted on the Recertification page under Education. Thank you.
