Reregistration

PLEASE NOTE THAT THE REREGISTRATION IS NO LONGER AUTOMATIC

The reregistration process changed in January of 2018 with the implementation of the updated PA EMS Registry.  It was previously an automatic process that relied on outdated communication with multiple agencies, software systems and persons. The new PA EMS Registry management system has now realigned us to the current EMS Systems Act and has allowed EMS providers in Pennsylvania to manage their respective certifications individually. We hope that you find this information helpful and if you have any specific questions please contact EMMCO West.

Updating Your Information

You can update your personal information in the Pennsylvania Registry. It is advised that you do so every certification period so that you can receive important information pertaining to your certification. This will also ensure that you receive your new certification card.

The following information cannot be changed by you and requires contact with your Regional Council:
   • Name
   • Date of Birth
   • Social Security Number

Once you have changed your information, remember to click “Update Data” to save changes. You will receive a pop-up notice asking to confirm the changes, click yes.

Updating CPR Information

All EMS providers are to maintain a current CPR certification. The course must be a PA DOH Bureau of EMS approved CPR course.

This information can be entered by the individual provider under the EMS Application then scroll down to CPR.
   • Enter the information from your card or
     certificate (e-card) into the provided fields
     and select the course name from the
     drop-down menu.

Please Note – Only classes that are listed in the drop-down list are acceptable for maintaining this requirement of EMS certification.

Checking Your ConED

To check your ConED status, please go to your ConED tab and review the following sections:

Current ConED – this will provide you a listing and certificates of classes that you have taken. If there are classes not listed do the following:
  1. This list will display 10 classes at a time, unless changed by you. Verify under the list that you have gone through each page.
  2. If your classes were taken in person, contact the Sponsor of that class and see what the status is.
  3. If your classes were taken in TRAIN PA, verify that your information in TRAIN is correct.
    • Typically, the issue is the certification number is put in as pa00000
      • To check this, log into TRAIN
      • Go to Profile (Top right of the page)
      • Pennsylvania EMS attributes
        • Make sure your certification number is just the number
    • Once you complete the above steps, wait 48 hours and check your ConEd report to see if the credits transferred. If not, contact your Regional Council.

ConED Summary – this section will provide a breakdown of the ConED that is required for your primary certification compared to how many hours that you have earned. Please note that 75% of the total hours required for your primary certification must be in Clinical Patient Care (CPC) category.
