IAFCCP Sponsors Critical Care Track at EMS World Expo -
Workshops and Core Program Session CE
Earn CE Appropriate for FP-C, CCP-C Certification Renewal
Certain workshops and core program sessions have been approved by the International Association of Flight & Critical Care Paramedics (IAFCCP), for continuing education activity appropriate for renewal of the Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C®) and/or Certified Critical Care Paramedic (CCP-C®) credential, from the International Board of Specialty Certification (IBSC).
To make FP-C® and/or CCP-C® recertification credit identification easier, attend and participate in the sessions that are marked with the IAFCCP logo and keep track of those sessions throughout the conference.
One CE is given per one-hour class. 1.25 credits are given per 75-minute class. Attendees can earn 8 credits for a full-day workshop.
Attendees can earn 13.5 hours of critical care CE appropriate for FP-C® for the 3-day core program and 16 hours for the TRACER course being hosted by IAFCCP on Oct 3–4. For that course, register online at www.astna.org or www.flightparamedic.org. Attendees can earn 13.5 hours of community paramedic CE appropriate for CCP-C® recertification for the 3-day core program and 8 hours for the Creating an Evidence-Based Practice for EMS in Integrated Healthcare workshop.
Exhibit Hall CE
Additional critical care and community paramedic CE activities can be obtained from identified vendors in the exhibit hall. Attendees will be required to visit vendors for an educational presentation and then complete a post test. To participate, visit the IAFCCP booth in the EMS World Expo exhibit hall for specific instructions. This activity is offered in association with Limmer Creative in the EMS World Expo exhibit hall.
Exhibit hall CE will earn between 0.1 and 0.5 credits per activity depending upon the complexity of the material and the time required. After the conference, you will receive a CE certificate issued by the IAFCCP as a PDF file to your e-mail with a summary of your exhibit hall CE activity. Submit this certificate, along with the EMS World Expo CE certificate and other necessary CE materials to the IBSC when your credential needs to be renewed. If you have questions or concerns, call 770/979-6372, or e-mail firstname.lastname@example.org.
Certified Community Paramedic (CP-C) Exam
This exam will be offered at EMS World Expo. The expectation for the CP-C exam candidate is competency in mobile integrated healthcare and expanded EMS services in rural and urban settings, including various healthcare, mental health, and housing and social service needs. This examination is not meant to test entry-level knowledge, but rather to validate competency of those paramedics providing services beyond the roles of traditional emergency care and transport.
