Elective CMEs allow Paramedics of all certification levels to tailor their education needs.
ACPs can review the CME Approval Chart found in the Pre-Approved CME Topics section below to find pre-approved CME topics to help them complete their annual MCME requirements.
Paramedics can also submit CME event for review by visiting the Submit ECME Points Section found below.
It is highly recommended that paramedics obtain approval for their chosen ECME topic before attending. If paramedics choose to attend without prior approval, their ECME topic may be declined, resulting in no ECME credits. To obtain pre-approval, please submit a request by visiting the PPO – Online Training section.
CME credits are allocated based on how the CME activity enhances the clinical practice of paramedicine at the certification level of the paramedic. The activity will be evaluated for educational merit. The number of credits may or may not equal the hours actually spent completing the specified CME activity, depending on the content.
Once an event has been completed, paramedics are required to submit their CME request to the PPO along with proof of attendance.
