VIRTUAL GEMSA Conference Re-launch
online ce sessions available feb. 1 - march 15

The last year has definitely been a challenge for frontline workers and obtaining CE hours for re-certification has also been challenging.

Therefore, GEMSA has partnered with the Georgia Trauma Commission to provide sessions from the 2020 Virtual GEMSA Providers & Educators Conference online once again in a virtual format to allow more EMS professionals and nurses to obtain CE hours. Thanks to this partnership, THIS EVENT IS BEING PROVIDED FREE OF CHARGE.

If you didn’t attend the 2020 Virtual GEMSA Providers & Educators Conference Oct. 11-Nov. 13, 2020, you now have a chance to watch sessions from the 2020 Conference and earn CE credit.
If you previously attended these sessions, you can’t get CE credit for attending the same sessions again, so please don’t register for this event.

CONTINUING EDUCATION HOURS

EMS CE hours are approved by the Georgia Office of EMS/Trauma.  

  • EMS Sessions are approved as provider hours, instructor hours, or dual credit.
    Dual credit means the session can be used for Provider OR Instructor hours, not both. You will have an option to select what type of credit you need on the session evaluation. This can’t be changed later, so make sure you know what type of credit you need for your EMS license re-certification when you are taking the courses.
  • Hours Available:
    Provider Only: 8  /  Instructor Only: 9   /  Dual (Instructor OR Provider): 12.5    /    TOTAL EMS Hours: 29.5
    (See a session list with hours available here.)

Nursing CE hours are being provided by ASTNA for the virtual conference.

  • Total Nursing hours available: 25.5 hours

How to get credit

Start and watch a live or recorded session until the end (remember – you must be “PRESENT” in each session for the minimum time of 50 minutes). You also have to fill out a session evaluation or you will not receive credit. Evaluations must be completed by March 15 to get credit.

CE Certificates

You will receive an email with a link to your printable certificate/transcript for all sessions completed on or before March 26, 2021. You have 90 days after the event to print your certificate online.

Please note that all sessions will be uploaded to the state GEMSIS system by GEMSA. We will have that completed by March 26. Please keep a copy of the certificate for your records, but there is no need to upload your sessions.
