Dallas, TX (PRWEB) January 30, 2013
Critical Information Network (CiNet), a leading online training and record-keeping provider for public safety professionals, is honored to be accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS). After a two-day visit by two CECBEMS auditors, CiNet was recognized for its needs assessment, course development and implementation and evaluation processes.
In the results, CECBEMS noted that it…“found clear evidence that CiNet not only adheres to CECBEMS standards and policies but embraces and employs them. We are thoroughly impressed with the efforts you take to build quality into your educational processes.”
“This is truly an honor and a significant achievement for CiNet,” noted Lonny Wilder, CiNet’s Vice President, of Public Safety. “We are dedicated to building a curriculum that not only addresses both the personal and public safety demands of Emergency Medical responders, but also helping these professionals stay current with the most accredited training possible. CECBEMS recognition clearly demonstrates that we’ve made that achievement a reality.”
This accreditation is for CiNet’s PULSE Emergency Medical Update content and encompasses the entire Emergency Medical curriculum training library. CECBEMS was interested in how needs assessment, program committee processes, medical direction/oversight, concept, production, delivery, evaluation and end-user reporting all come together for the benefit of the individual EMS provider.
The audit report by CECBEMS of CiNet’s PULSE Emergency Medical Update content outlined specific findings, including:
-CiNet’s Program Committee, whose members all have long histories of EMS management and education, has oversight of all coursework.
-The Needs Assessment; a worksheet is given to users so they may provide feedback to CiNet, is reviewed and used by the committee in ongoing course development.
-CiNet’s Director of Education works closely with the Program Committee and production, and is a full time fire fighter and paramedic.
-Course content authors often use the CECBEMS policy and guidance, ensuring course attendees receive standardized courses and testing every time.
