TargetSolutions, the leading provider of computer-based training management applications for public safety agencies, has been approved to provide fire and EMS departments in the state of New York with 100 percent of their recertification training.
Agencies can now complete the New York Department of Health’s required paperwork to request permission for completing 100 percent of their Three-Year EMS Continuing Medical Education (CME) Recertification Program through TargetSolutions.
“We’re excited about this development because it simplifies the continuing education process for agencies in New York that are using TargetSolutions, or agencies that are about to implement the platform,” said TargetSolutions’ Director of Product Andrea Letzring. “In the past, agencies could use TargetSolutions for 50 percent of the required training. Now, the entire CME requirement can be fulfilled utilizing TargetSolutions. This is a huge benefit to agencies because it streamlines training, saving valuable time, and resources.”
The City of Olean (NY) Fire Department was the first agency to submit the required paperwork, which includes six mandatory questions with detailed answers made available by TargetSolutions. The department’s Line Supervisor Tim Richardson was thrilled to learn the application was accepted.
“It’s hard to complete continuing education requirements without something like TargetSolutions,” Richardson said. “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.”
TargetSolutions features more than 160 hours of accredited online EMS training that is accepted in the state of New York. In addition, TargetSolutions is organizationally accredited by the Commission on Accreditation Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE).
Emergency responders in the state of New York are required to complete 72 hours of training every three years. Now, the entirety of that requirement can be fulfilled online with TargetSolutions.
