EMS1 Academy has added many new system features and functionality this year, continuing to improve our training management solution for EMS agencies. Most recently, we turned our focus to our course library and making it easy for administrators to find exactly what they’re looking to assign to personnel. As a result, we’ve re-organized our set of available course topics. Our content development and accreditation teams works hard to ensure we continue to offer the most relevant training topics for the safety and preparation of our first responders, as well as provide the best user experience in our learning management solution.
On January 11, 2019, the new categories will go into effect and will be available to administrators in the ‘Topics’ drop-down menu within EMS1 Academy. Some of the topics will look familiar and will not have changed. There will also be a new set of topics not previously offered. All courses, including any custom courses you may have created within the system specific to your agency, have been moved accordingly to the most appropriate topic.
An added bonus? As we overhauled the categories used across our nearly 3,300 courses at Praetorian Digital, we identified nearly 125 courses that cover highly-requested professional development needs like Human Resources, General Safety, Professional Skills and more, which we’ll be adding to department accounts when we make the change later this month. All courses are in the process of being submitted to the appropriate accrediting bodies for review for possible credit towards license requirements. Additional details will be provided as they become available.
A full mapping of the topic changes are included below for easy reference. You can always contact your Customer Success Manager with any questions you may have as well.
