WVEMS is once again accepting bids from instructors, Education Coordinators, training centers, ALS Coordinators, EMS agencies, local governments, etc. to offer Category 1 Continuing Education and approved auxiliary courses throughout the region. Thanks to a cooperative opportunity with the Virginia Department of Health Office if EMS, funding is available to pay an hourly rate for qualified 33-hour CE courses, and a per-student payment for approved auxiliary courses. Courses MUST COMPLETE by June 30, 2019 to be eligible for funding.

Please note that CE courses are NO LONGER REQUIRED to be announced in 33-hour blocks, and are not restricted to two per locality. Any number of courses, for any number of hours of ALS or BLS Cat. 1 CE, in any locality may be submitted.

WVEMS will hold three workshops to assist you and your agency in preparing your RSAF grant application to maximize your chances of an award. In conjunction with the Virginia Office of EMS, we will provide information and discussion on the web-based application, the review process and the methodology for awarding and drawing down RSAF grants. If you expect to apply for the current cycle (DEADLINE IS September 17), plan to attend one of these informative sessions.
