2021 Virtual Conference

Thank you for joining us for our Virtual NCEMSF Conference, sponsored by ZOLL. Please see below for instructions on claiming Continuing Education credit. 

Continuing Education

Participants who have pre-registered will be eligible for Continuing Education credit, contingent upon completion of the post-Conference survey/evaluation. To claim credit, log in with the account you used to pre-register, then visit the My CE Records page. From there, verify the lectures you attended, rate the speaker and topic for each, and use the green plus icon to add them to the final record. Once all sessions have been rated and added, you can generate a PDF transcript that can be submitted via your state's procedures for Continuing Education credit by endorsement. 

Continuing Education is only available to those that pre-registered.

Future 2021 Events

We are hopeful that we will be able to schedule an in-person event later in 2021, pending the status of the virus and availability of the vaccine. We have developed a short survey to gauge interest in and assess the scheduling, administrative, and financial constraints that groups may face with attending an in-person Conference, likely after the conclusion of the spring semester. If a representative of your group has not yet completed the survey, please fill it out so we can make an informed decision regarding any potential in-person events this year.
