When it comes to the best offerings in the EMS profession, the Journal of Emergency Medical Services shares it expertise every year with its readers. Distance CME by OnCourse Learning, which educates professionals across the globe, has earned its place among the very best.
JEMS included the education leader in its 2016 list of “30 Hot Products,” which is a nationally recognized honor in the EMS industry.
“This is a validation that our course offerings improve the way EMS professionals deliver care, increase provider safety and provide a better experience for patients,” said Scott McConnell, RN, CEN, NREMT-P, PHRN, who serves as vice president of EMS education for OnCourse Learning. “Our live, online courses provide quality and convenience in two-hour blocks for busyp rofessionals.”
JEMS judges each product for originality, functionality, ease of use and EMS industry need.
“The review team was impressed with the selection of offerings from Distance CME,” said lead judge Fran Hildwine, BS, NRP.
A panel of eight judges comprised of field providers, educators, managers and physicians reviews and rates products at the annual EMS Today convention to come up with the Hot Products list.
McConnell helped start the company in 2010 after a friend working as a civilian paramedic in the Middle East noted all of his certifications were lapsing while he was overseas.
JEMS recognized Distance CME by OnCourse Learning for providing “all-in-one educational courses that include more than 400 hours of live online course hours per month, recertification courses and separate programs for medical, trauma, critical care, obstetrics/pediatrics, respiratory and more.”
Course offerings and a course calendar, along with how to request a demo, can be found on the Distance CME website.
