Things are heating up in the Big Easy with the EMS World Expo from October 29, through November 2, 2012 in Partnership with the NAEMT.  The big Expo will take place at the Ernest N. Morial Convention Center and there are many great new exciting things taking place.

This event has a full venue full of pre-conference and conference scheduled classes and courses available to all.  The best part is that the Continuing Education Activity is approved by the Cygnus Expositions, an organization accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS). CECBEMS approved classes are accepted by the National Registry of EMT’s (NREMT) for recertification requirements. One CEU is given per one hour class. 1.5 credits are given per 75 minute class. All EMS World Expo conference programs are 75 minutes long. Attendees can earn 4 credits while taking the half day pre-conferences and 8 credits for the full day pre-conferences. There is no limit on how many CEU credits attendees can earn at EMS World Expo.

The World Trauma Symposium will be held on November 1, 2012, hosted by NAEMT’s PHTLS and EMS World.  Don’t want to miss this great opportunity.
