EMS Continuing Education Extension

A certificate holder that served in the Armed Forces during the current or a prior reporting period may request an extension of the EMS certificate to practice continuing education reporting period.

The certificate holder shall submit an application requesting the extension along with proper documentation certifying the active duty service and the length of that active duty service. Upon the submission of the application for an extension and verification of active duty service, the Division of EMS will extend the current reporting period by an amount of time equal to the total number of months the certificate holder spent on active duty during the current reporting period. Any portion of a month served on active duty will be considered one full month.

There are no fees associated with continuing education extensions.
