Emergency Health Systems EMS Education and Training
In the ever-changing world of medicine, the out-of-hospital provider has the challenge of "keeping up" with pre-hospital medical advancements. From the Emergency Medical Responder to the Paramedic, continued Education and Training must be planned and executed in a timely manner.
The EMS Program has a highly organized system of Education and Training. The Unicameral, Nebraska's Legislative body, has provided funds for both initial and Continuing EMS Education. Educational programs are available through continuing education classes, large multi day EMS conferences and one day local conferences. 
Each Ambulance Service has the ability to receive various continuing education classes right in their service. Financial assistance for these educational programs as well as EMS conferences may be requested on the EMS Continuing Education Grant Form.

In order for a person to be reimbursed for some of their initial education or reinstatement, they must become Nebraska licensed as an out-of-hospital responder and be a member of a Nebraska emergency medical service. All initial EMS training is arranged through licensed EMS Training Agencies.
A change to the process in continuing education requests is coming. Updates soon.
