SAN DIEGO – TargetSolutions, the leading provider of computer-based training management applications for public safety agencies, is now able to provide fire and EMS departments in the state of New York with nearly 100 percent of their recertification training.
Agencies can now complete the New York Department of Health’s required paperwork to request permission for completing nearly 100 percent of their Three-Year EMS Continuing Medical Education (CME) Recertification Program through TargetSolutions.
When an agency submits to allow their EMS providers to utilize 100 percent self-study thru an online training provider, the agency selects a vendor. The New York State Bureau of EMS then approves the agency’s program based on the outline of that program. Any vendor used must meet specific security and disability access regulations. They must also meet rules regarding the distribution and function of the online content.
The City of Olean Fire Department (N.Y.) was the first agency to submit the required paperwork, outlined in the New York Department of Health’s Administration Manual. The process included answering six mandatory questions with detailed responses made available by TargetSolutions. The department’s Line Supervisor Tim Richardson was thrilled to learn the department’s application had been accepted.
“It’s hard to complete continuing education requirements without something like TargetSolutions. An online system keeps you coordinated and puts all of the training at our fingertips. Having 100 percent online was important for us. It gives us the ability to instantaneously determine where everyone is at from a training perspective.”
Tim Richardson, City of Olean Fire Department (N.Y.)
