Webinar on August 22 – “The Future of EMS Education: Revising the EMS Education Standards”

NHTSA’s Office of EMS is hosting a webinar on August 22 at 12pm ET on “The Future of EMS Education: Revising the EMS Education Standards.” The National EMS Education Standards, first published in 2009, set the foundation for initial education of EMS clinicians at the EMR, EMT, AEMT, and paramedic levels. Now, those standards are being revised, and it’s your turn to provide input.

In this webinar, you’ll hear from leaders of the effort to update the education standards as they share details of the first draft, which will be released for public comment in August. They’ll explain why the education standards are being updated, the process to do so, and the members of the team behind the effort.

In addition, panelists will share:

  • How the new EMS Education Standards will align with the recently released 2019 National EMS Scope of Practice Model
  • The role of the EMS Education Standards and their impact on the profession
  • Opportunities for you to share feedback and contribute to this important project
