On-Line Con-Ed

The Department of Health provides an on-line continuing education option for those providers who wish to avail themselves of that option.  Providers need to register to gain access to the course content.  Course completion information – including continuing education hours – are automatically downloaded to the EMS registry shortly after successful completion of the on-line course.

The Commonwealth has recently moved from the “LMS” format to “TRAIN”.  Providers who were previously registered within the LMS system have been migrated to the TRAIN system – should you experience problems logging into the TRAIN system, please contact the regional council for assistance.
