This week, Inside EMS co-hosts Chris Cebellero and Kelly Grayson discuss a drafted resolution by NREMT that could affect certifications at all levels.

If the resolution is approved following a public comment period, the National Registry executive director would update the initial certification requirements for all levels of certification (EMR, EMT, AEMT, and paramedic) to include successful completion of an EMS education program that meets or exceeds the National Emergency Medical Services Education Standards and:

  • has an CAAHEP-accreditation, or
  • has been issued a CoAEMSP “Letter of Review,” or
  • has received state EMS office approval.

Listen to the discussion and weigh in below with your comments.
