Continuing Medical Education (CME) allows paramedics to maintain competence and learn about new and developing areas within their field. The goal is to enhance their existing knowledge, skill and abilities to strengthen the overall delivery of prehospital patient care. The Northwest Region Prehospital Care Program (NWRPCP) CME Program Guide and Catalogue offers guidance and direction to paramedics regarding their CME requirements. Our continued goal is to provide all paramedicsthe opportunity to self-direct their CME to address their individual needs where applicable.
Accredited CME hours for Maintenance of Certification (MOC) will be applied for educational activity that enhances the clinical practice of paramedics at their certification level. For hours to be accredited, pre-approval of all educational activities by NWRPCP is required.
Paramedics are encouraged to engage in as many CME activities as possible to support continued growth and improvement of skills.
Annual MOC requires ACP’s to accumulate a minimum of 24 hours of accredited CME and PCP’s a minimum of 8 hours. All accumulated CME hours above the minimum requirements will be notated in the paramedic’s professional file.
