Do you spend too much time on EMT recertification? Not any more …
The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians and the Commission on Accreditation for preHospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) has partnered to allow you to import CAPCE-approved EMT continuing education course records directly into your National Registry account. This is good news for your EMT recertification efforts.
“This system was designed and built by CAPCE and the National Registry with the goal of relieving the demands on our nation’s paramedics, AEMTs, EMTs and emergency medical responders,” said Jay Scott, executive director of CAPCE. “We’re happy to provide validated continuing education data that will make the EMT recertification process faster and easier.”
The new website functionality allows nationally certified EMS personnel to import CAPCE-accredited electronic transcripts — complete with course name, completion date and course sponsor — direct from the secure CAPCE database into your personal National Registry transcripts.
This will benefit you because it:
- Saves time.
- Eliminates duplicate data entry.
- Increases accuracy of information submitted to the National Registry during your recertification process.
“We’re excited to provide a major time savings to our EMS personnel,” said Donnie Woodyard, COO at the National Registry.
“This also provides immediate validation to National Registry staff that the imported CAPCE courses are compliant during random and routine audits that we conduct.”
CAPCE’s Accreditation Management System holds about 10 million records and grows at a rate of 1.2 million records per year.
