Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE)


There are several very exciting and important items that the CECBEMS Board of Directors would like to share with you: 

New web based application format:
As of June 1, 2016 all of our application processes including Organizational Accreditation, Organizational Accreditation for a CoAEMSP accredited program, One Time Activity, Multiple Event Activity, Distributive Learning Activity and Virtual Instructor Lead Training Activity can be completed through our web page.  Application narratives can be completed in your own secure account and relevant supporting documents can be uploaded directly to your application file.  Once an application is complete, our reviewers are assigned electronically. Reviewers can complete the application review in a secure process on our web page.  As of August 1, 2016 paper applications and those submitted vial email and Drop Box will no longer be accepted.  Please follow this link to request a secure application key and complete your applications on our web page.

Name and Logo Change:
As you are aware, the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for EMS (CECBEMS) Board of Directors has been considering a name and logo change for several years.  The CECBEMS Board has agreed that this change is important as CECBEMS does not coordinate EMS continuing education. We are an accrediting body, and believe that our name should reflect our mission.   

After much work with our marketing partner, the CECBEMS Board of Directors has adopted a new name; the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE).  We are currently working with our legal counsel to resolve any individual state requirements related to the name change.   Our name change will occur on July 1, 2016.  Our standards and requirements will remain unchanged. 

I would appreciate your assistance in transitioning this change into your web page, documents and course completion certificates as appropriate.  We understand that this transition will take some time to complete.   Here is our new logo:
Address Change:
We’ve simply outgrown our space.  As of July 1st, 2016 our new address will be:

Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE)
12300 Ford Road, Suite 350
Dallas, TX 75234

Please take note of our new address and update your files as needed

Staff Changes:
As you are all probably aware by now, Barbara Remkus has retired.  Our new Review Coordinator, Mindy Millage is an Army Combat Veteran who is passionate about paperless office systems.  You can contact Mindy at mmillage@cecbems.org.  After July 1st, you may use mmillage@capce.org.  Mindy is helping us transform all of our applications to web based formats.  

Susan Walter has accepted our Accounts Manager position.  Susan comes to us with many years’ experience in managing business accounts.  If you have questions about your account, you may contact Susan at swalter@cecbems.org.  (swalter@capce.org after July 1st)   

Thank you for your time and continued support.  Please let me know if you have any questions.
