A vital part of our continuing education is our Registry Instructors. They help facilitate education throughout all of our EMS agencies. Each month over 60 hours of education is taught throughout the system.
Are you looking to further your career in EMS? Becoming a Registry Instructor allows you to directly effect the direction and quality of the EMS system. It also opens other opportunities within EMS, whether becoming a department training officer or becoming a lead instructor and teaching licensure classes, there are multiple places for you to get involved with.
On August 15th, 2018, the EMS office released new qualifications for Registry Instructors. In order to create high quality continuing education, we believed in setting minimum standards for new Instructors.

-The instructor should have no system discipline within the previous year
