Career Step Expands Programs Offered through Jefferson College to Include EMS Continuing Education
Career Step, an online provider of career-focused education and corporate training, has expanded its academic partnership with Jefferson College to include professional development education for EMT and EMS professionals. These EMS refresher courses were developed by Code3 CME, a Career Step company.
“We added these refresher courses to our portfolio as a flexible way to provide high-quality, convenient professional development training for our EMS graduates,” said Bryan Herrick, Jefferson College Director of Business and Workforce Development. “We have successfully worked with Career Step for the past several years, trust the quality of their training programs, and are confident that these additional courses will provide the same positive results for our students. We are excited to continue and broaden our relationship, and we look forward to providing valuable education resources to our local EMT and EMS professionals.”
Jefferson College will be offering Career Step’s EMS refresher training, which was added to the Career Step catalog when it acquired Code3 CME earlier this year. Available courses offer both instructor-led classes as well as self-paced, online training. Courses new to Jefferson College with this partnership include the 24-Hour EMT Transition Course; 48-Hour EMT, AEMT and Paramedic Refresher Transition Course; Critical Care Transport Review Course; and the Self-Paced, Anywhere, Anytime Modules.
All courses are approved by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) in partnership with Code3 CME and provide the training EMS professionals need to meet national registry and state regulatory board requirements.
“These programs are an excellent option for EMS professionals as the online convenience allows them to get the training they need without having to take time off of work,” said Judson Smith, Code3 CME Founder and Career Step Vice President of Continuing Education. “I am excited for and appreciate the opportunity to partner with Jefferson College and make these programs accessible to a greater number of professionals.”
