~ Regional Training Calendar ~

Peninsulas EMS Council is the “go to” source for information on EMS training and education throughout the region!

Whether hosted by PEMS, our sister regional councils, or produced by our agency and health system partners, PEMS is the central repository in the region for training information.

If your organization is providing training and you would like to make that training available to others, please let us know below and we will post it to the Regional Training Calendar.

Training Announcements

Do you want to be a Virginia Office of EMS educator?

 The Office of EMS is going to initiate a Special Call EC Institute, one final Institute under the old process. To get this started, OEMS has reopened the EC Candidate Application in the EMS Portal as of today.

OEMS will accept the first 24 candidates that complete their application and testing process before October 31, 2017 for the Institute, set for December 9-13, in Chesterfield County. The Cognitive Exam will be the National Registry EMT Exam, and the Psychomotor will be taken at any CTS site in Virginia. The EC Candidate will be responsible for all fees associated with the NR Cognitive Exam and the CTS Exam. By going this route, OEMS will be able to certify everyone as an EC in December without the mentorship piece.

Interested candidates should log into their EMS Portal and follow the link <My Tests & Eligibility> Selecting the option <Eligibility Letters> and then on the right side should be the option to <Submit EC Candidate Application>. They will need to submit a copy of their highest Education Diploma, a Letter from their EMS Agency attesting to the 3 years of certification and 2 years of verified EMS Experience, the OMD Endorsement and any additional Education (OEMS is still honoring Fire Instructor and MEd for just the 2-day admin part)

Once the applications are complete and they are EC Candidates, they will need to register for the Cognitive and Psychomotor. They can be taken in any order. As applications are approved OEMS will forward the Instructions on Registering and their EC-C Letter of Eligibility for the CTS.

If there are any questions regarding the EC Process, please forward them to Greg Neiman @ This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.
