Question:
Why is CAPCE accreditation important to me?

Answer:
 - It is accepted by NREMT and 96% of states.*
 - It contains challenging content based on a review of the current literature.
 - Accredited CE providers must maintain accurate and complete records of course completions and verify attendance.
 - CE providers must report course completions the CAPCE database for verification by NREMT, state EMS offices, training officers, and individual EMS professionals.

*Some states do not automatically accept externally-accredited activities.  Check with your state EMS agency to verify that CAPCE accreditation will be accepted, that you have met all requirements for content, and that you do not exceed the maximum number of hours allowed for hours earned by distributed learning.
