Continuing Education Requirements

The summaries available for download on this page will help answer questions about meeting the requirements for maintaining an EMS or Fire Service certification in Ohio. Although every attempt has been made to ensure the accuracy of the following information, in the event of a discrepancy, the language in the Ohio Administrative Code shall apply.


  • It is the certificate holder’s responsibility to maintain CE records. Do not to rely on a department to maintain them.
  • EMS certificate holders may choose to complete an examination in lieu of continuing education to renew your Ohio EMS certificate to practice.
  • For fire CE, “test only” online courses are not acceptable. Certificate holders need to complete actual CE modules, not just a test module.
