Medic-CE, a Career Step company and provider of accredited, online continuing education for EMS and firefighting professionals, will discuss how agencies and departments can use existing content or provide their own curriculum on Medic-CE’s powerful online learning platform during a free, live 45-minute webinar at 1 p.m. Eastern Time on Thursday, Feb. 16, 2017.
In “Top 5 Reasons for Implementing Online Refresher Training,” Judson Smith, Career Step Vice President of Continuing Education will share how online refresher training helps agencies achieve compliance, simplify oversight, reduce risk, improve learning experiences and save time and money. Smith, who is a paramedic with more than 20 years’ experience in the field, will be joined by Mike Hodgson, Career Step Executive Vice President of Healthcare Products and Partnerships.
“First responders’ schedules are hectic, so a solution that offers them maximum flexibility is key—and our learning platform excels in that,” Smith said. “With the Medic-CE platform agencies can have flexibility in both when and where students complete the courses as well as what they are learning. Departments can leverage any of the over 200 hours of content we offer or create and deliver their own online training.”
Medic-CE stands out from competitors as one of the only companies offering affordable virtual, instructor-led training (VILT) and self-paced continuing medical education courses as well as the option for companies to create and deliver customized in-house training for their teams. The Medic-CE learning platform also provides robust statistical reporting and tracking down to the individual level, allowing agencies to see how engaged individuals are in the training, including course completions, failures and past-due assignments.

All Medic-CE EMS solutions are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) and are accepted by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
