Upkeep of EMS continuing education courses



| Wednesday, May 7, 2014

TargetSolutions is excited to announce the creation of its EMS Advisory Board. The new six-member panel has been formed to deliver TargetSolutions’ Content team with valuable recommendations to improve existing EMS continuing educationcourses, as well as review new training material during the development process.

“While we strive to produce the most creative and engaging content possible, it is important that we don’t lose sight ofthe big picture. We are in this to help keep EMTs and paramedics certified. The TargetSolutions EMS Advisory board willmake sure we are on the right track and that our EMS catalog is up-to-date and relevant,” said Content Architect Jeremy Lynch.

The board was initially created in late 2013 and held its first group meeting during the EMS Today Conference in WashingtonD.C. in February. With more than 160 hours of accredited EMS recertification courses available on TargetSolutions’online EMS training system, the board has a unique opportunity to influence existing courses, as well as futureEMS refresher training that can be scheduled, delivered and tracked through the industry’s leading computer-basedtraining platform.

TargetSolutions took careful consideration during the selection of members for the board, which features a diverse group of experienced individuals from a wide range of settings across the EMS industry.

“One thing we’re really proud of with this Board is the breadth of experience these individuals bring to the table,” saidContent and Compliance Manager Lauren Crosby, NREMT. “We’ve got field providers, educators, and Medical Directors,which allow us to examine the delivery of EMS from a lot of angles.”
