Elective CME


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.

Don’t see a topic that interests you? Have another Education opportunity? No problem, submit your CME event for review by visiting the Submit ECME Points Section found below.

Approval Process

It is highly recommended that you obtain approval for your chosen ECME topic before attending. If you choose to attend without prior approval your ECME topic may be declined resulting in no ECME credits. To obtain pre-approval, please submit your 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.

After you have completed, you are required to submit your CME request to the PPO along with proof of attendance.
