Will your CE courses be accepted in my state?
EMT-CE is certified by the Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) which serves as the recognized leader for continuing education in EMS. Currently, CAPCE accredited courses are accepted in all states, however, Virginia has an approved CAPCE provider list we're applying for. At this time, our courses are not on the approved provider list in Virginia.
What is the difference between an F3 course and an F5 course?
An F3 course is what’s called “distributive education.” An instructor does not have to present during the course. An F5 course is called “instructor-led,” which means that an instructor must be available at all times for a student to contact, whether that be by phone or by email.
Will this work on my phone and tablet, or just my computer?
Our F5 VILT courses are 100% browser-based. They will work on any device with an internet connection. We require each user to do a system check before they try to enter the virtual classroom to ensure it meets the minimum performance requirements. We suggest doing this before signing up for our F5 course packages.
Can I take the same course more than once with my membership?
Within your recertification cycle, you will not receive credit for taking the same course multiple times. When you sign up for EMT-CE you will have 1 year of access to the course package you select. You are able to take the same course once within your membership's 1 year of access. If you purchase another membership after your year of access is complete, your old courses will be archived and reopened for you to take again.
How do I recertify if I am moving out of state?
This is a great question, and first, check your new states reciprocity requirements. Most states require an application, background check, and current National Registry certification. Our recommendation would be purchasing the EMT-CE recertification bundle and make sure your NREMT is valid.
