New Online CEH Request Process
Over the past year, Maine EMS, has been working to improve the process currently used to request approval for continuing education credits.
- eLicensing allows for a completed CEH request to reach the approving Training Center faster
- Ability for the individual requesting the approval to track the status of a request submitted
- The individual requesting approval will receive notifications on receipt, issuance of a course approval, or request for more information
- The individual requesting approval will be responsible for entry of attendee’s, which will greatly decrease the time for credit to appear on attendees’ training reports.
An online education for providers is now available on MEMSEd providing detailed steps as well as a system and process overview Access MEMSEd at: http://www.maine.gov/ems/providers/MEMSEd.html
The request process is available for use today! At a future date Maine EMS will require training to be requested through this system.
