Kentucky EMS for Children

Special Announcement!

Kentucky EMS for Children (KYEMSC) is excited to announce that we are providing a FREE 3-hour online course on Pediatric Assessment for current Kentucky EMS providers.

The course is CECBEMS approved and is offered through Medic-CE, an asynchronous, computer-based, distance learning program. Continuing education credit can be used to meet requirements for Kentucky certification, as well as National Registry, within the limits allowed for this type of training.

The number of “seats” for this course is limited and will be provided on a first-come basis. In order to receive complete instructions on how to take advantage of this opportunity, individual providers will need to log into their KEMSIS account and submit a brief application for the course. Once the request is submitted, the participant will have 90 days to complete the program.

Instructions: Sign into your KEMSIS account and select Applications, View My Applications, and Apply Now to complete the KYEMSC Pediatric Assessment Medic-CE application. You will receive additional instructions via email on how to set up an account with Medic-CE and access the course.

If you have questions regarding this program, please contact:
