State Approvals for Pre-hospital ALS Providers
eACLS™ is eligible for CEUs through CECBEMS. The NREMT will accept continuing education and verification of ACLS in programs that are CECBEMS or state EMS office approved. The American College of Emergency Physicians has contacted all 50 states regarding state approval for the eACLS™ course. Most states have indicated that CECBEMS approval is sufficient. If you have questions regarding your specific state, please contact your Public Safety Sales Specialist.
Here is what one eACLS™ user had to say:
"With all the mandated requirements for fire departments, there is not enough time or space to provide training in the traditional classroom manner. As the nurse consultant to the Sacramento Fire Department, I have found eACLS to be the perfect solution to provide up-to-date needed information to our 300+ paramedics. The paramedics also like this method of learning because they can take the course at their own pace, review the materials at the station instead of a classroom setting, and complete the course over a period of time. The tracking log for record keeping is also very handy."
