The second draft of proposed revisions to the National EMS Education Standards is now available for public comment.

Members of the EMS community and the public are invited to review the document and provide feedback to the team leading the effort by Tuesday, March 17, using this online form

The revision of the National EMS Education Standards is being led by a team of experienced EMS professionals convened by the National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE) with support from the NHTSA Office of EMS and the HRSA EMS for Children program.

The team has engaged with stakeholders across EMS and healthcare to create this second draft of the standards, and a final publication of the revised National EMS Education Standards is anticipated by late 2020.

The revision effort follows on the heels of last year’s publication of an updated National EMS Scope of Practice Model.
