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.
