All providers are to log in with their new user name, the letters pa and your certification number (pa123456) the old user id’s have been deactivated, unless they are attached to a service license application. Most of the issues with duplicate entries to the continuing education reports has been resolved, however If you still have an issue, please contact EMMCO West and we can assist you with the corrective process.

Continuing Education Sponsors are to use the new EMS registry system to apply for approval and manage their classes. This includes adding the students and instructor rosters within ten days from the end of class. The previous system, Con Ed link no longer has access to the PA Bureau of EMS and any information will not apply to the providers records. Any student / instructor rosters imputed to the old system after 1/26/2018 will have to be reentered in to the current system. instructions can be found under the help section of the main menu bar or by calling our education specialist.
