It’s official! The Fire Academy is now New Jersey Accredited!
The Fire Academy is thrilled to announce that we are now accredited by the New Jersey Office of EMS to offer continuing education credits for all EMS providers. Below is an FAQ to break this down for you.
What does this mean?
EMT’s in the state of New Jersey can now acquire their continuing education credits via The Fire Academy, an accredited New Jersey EMS training provider.
How many hours are available?
At the moment, The Fire Academy offers 14 courses that EMS professionals can take. This is an equivalent of 15 hours that are approved as continuing education credits. Stay tuned for more updates as we continue to add more courses the rest of the year.
How does reporting work for EMT’s?
We only need two things from EMT’s:
- Upload your license information into our license manager tool in your profile.
- Complete the courses you are assigned (or enrolled yourself to).
…and that’s it! We’ll take it from there and report all course completions to the New Jersey Office of EMS.
How about reporting for paramedics?
Paramedics can also take our approved EMS courses. Once completed, they must submit them to their clinical coordinator for approval.
