Support Change to EMT Instructor Certification

New Jersey has a critical shortage of certified Emergency Medical Technician instructors.  With a net loss of certified instructors occurring every year, the NJEMSEA has presented the Office of Emergency Medical Services with a plan to streamline the process for EMT instructor certification.  This plan works within the current 8:40a regulations that the Office of EMS must follow, is revenue-neutral to the Department, and provides NJ EMS training centers with two opportunities per year to certify instructors instead of just one.

As a provider your actions can better the health of one patient at a time.   As an instructor your actions can better the health of every patient touched by every one of your students.  There is no more efficient way for a clinician to positively impact the world than to share his or her knowledge with others.”
