Non-credit Continuing Education Course Notice

To more efficiently disseminate information and reduce the burden of course announcements, courses offered through Penn State University available for Department of Health (DOH) Continuing Education (CE) credits will no longer be faxed and mailed out to all interested individuals or entities. The DOH has a website specifically targeted to EMS personnel and entities; for more information visit health.pa.gov.

We encourage every certified provider to register on this site to access its resources. Should you wish to search for only programs offered through Penn State, our Sponsor Number is 200007. This number can be entered after selecting "More Search Criteria." After your search has produced its results additional information may be obtained by clicking the highlighted "Continuing Education Class Number (Con Ed Class #)." Questions or problems with the site, registration, or information contained therein should be directed to your regional EMS council.

We will continue to target specific populations with an interest in specific programming unless they request to opt out. For example: EVOC programs will continue to be advertised to local public safety entities as it is both a DOH CE program and also specifically applies to the non-medical emergency response community; not all personnel have access to DOH resources.

Another useful online resource available to Pennsylvania EMS providers, free of charge, is the Learning Management System (LMS). Please contact your regional EMS council to be added to this resource that, among other items, will allow you to take online CME programs for recertification.

You may want to visit the DOH website as there is an abundance of Pennsylvania specific health-related information available. Specifically, the EMS Office’s website offers links to the LMS, new BLS Protocols, EMS Information Bulletins, your regional councils, and more.
