WVEMS is once again accepting bids from instructors, Education Coordinators, training centers, ALS Coordinators, EMS agencies, local governments, etc. to offer Category 1 Continuing Education and approved auxiliary courses throughout the region.

Courses MUST COMPLETE by June 30, 2019 to be eligible for funding.

Please note that CE courses are NO LONGER REQUIRED to be announced in 33-hour blocks, and are not restricted to two per locality. Any number of courses, for any number of hours of ALS or BLS Cat. 1 CE, in any locality may be submitted.
