2018 BLS Free Update Training Announced!

Posted on in Training

Coastal Valleys EMS Agency (CVEMSA) is pleased to announce the locations and dates for the 2018 new BLS Update trainings.

Revisions to the California Code of Regulations (CCR) Title 22 Div. 9 Chapter 2 Emergency Medical Technician made by the state took effect on July 1, 2017. The revisions expanded the scope of practice to include the addition of EMT-administered epinephrine, naloxone and use of glucometers within the organized EMS system. Earlier revisions allowed for EMT use of Continuous Positive Airway Pressure (CPAP).

The revised regulations require all EMTs to provide proof of completion of expanded scope of practice training when renewing certification on or after July 1, 2019. This class will fulfill that requirement and upon successful completion students will meet the new state standard for EMT practice.

These FREE trainings are available to all EMTs in the CVEMSA region. Enrollment is open to any CV- certified EMT and will meet the state mandated requirements for EMT re-certification.

Training will include:

  • Auto-injector epinephrine for allergic reaction
  • Naloxone administration
  • Aspirin administration
  • Blood glucose determination
  • Multi Casualty Incident Training updates
  • CPAP

The classes will be offered twice a month, one in Mendocino County and one in Sonoma County. See Schedule of Classes for more details. CVEMSA appreciates the assistance and support of our partner agencies hosting the training.

This course meets the required standards for EMS Continuing Education Hours (CEH) Students will receive four (4) hours of EMS CE with your certificate of completion.

Registration is open through our CVEMSA License Management System. Please watch our "how to enroll" training video at We are limited of 40 students per class- so register early to ensure your spot!
