The EMS Councils are now able to print continuing education status reports for all providers. Pre-hospital practitioners are also able to print their own status reports from the EMSO website https://ems.health.state.pa.us/emsportal/ - Emergency Medical Services Registry System (EMSRS)). ALS Providers may select current year or previous year reports.
If you have never been to this website you will be required to register - if you do not remeber your login name - you must contact the DOH office for assistance. Please do not create a duplicate login name.
The "Continuing Education/Certification Info" link a will allow individuals to search for upcoming registered class, view the approved course list; and Con-ed Sponsors will go here to register classes and submit new courses, and maintain their Sponsor accreditation information.
