EMS Instructor CEU Workshop

The workshop will be held Friday January 27th and Saturday January 28th in Magnolia, Arkansas. Participants can earn up to 12 Hours of Instructor Level CEUs. The new rules and regs now require 12 Instructor Level CEU to renew. 

On Friday we will have an evening workshop called “Conquering Our Giants.” We will address some of the giants that we face as training officers and instructors. Greg Brown will be coming down to address the NCCP renewal process. He will explain “what” it is and how to implement it. He will also answer any questions that you have. In order for him to be able to provide the best answer possible, we have included a “Question Form” that we are asking you to submit with your registration. We will forward your questions and concerns to Greg so that he will be able to research them and provide you with an answer Friday night. We will also address other hot topics such as scenario based practical exams, clinical site concerns and test item writing. 4 Instructor CEU
Pre-Registration is not required for the Friday night session; however, for planning purposes it is GREATLY APPRECIATED!

On Saturday, the “one and only KC Jones” will be doing an all day workshop called “Energizing The Classroom.” 8 Instructor CEU
 Due to the nature of the Saturday workshop we are requiring participants to pre-register. Once you have registered you will receive an email with pre-class instructions for that session.
Even if you don’t “need” the CEU to renew, this is still an incredible opportunity to network with colleagues, address concerns you are facing and learn new strategies for your classroom! Company Training Officers can also benefit, especially from the NCCP session.
A special room rate is available for only $91 plus tax at the Hampton Inn in Magnolia. Make reservations early to guarantee a room.
If you have any questions you can email me or call/text (870)904-1573.
