Pre-Con #3




Paul Werfel, MS, NREMT-P

Jon Politis, MS, NREMT-P

This two-day workshop will provide 16 hours of ALS Training that an AEMT, Critical Care or Paramedic may apply towards the “Core” Refresher Training of their NYS CME-Based Recertification Program. These 16 hours may also be applied towards the Mandatory Core Content required by the NREMT, meeting the objectives of the DOT Advanced Refresher.

For those who attended Vital Signs 2015 and 2016, this workshop will build upon the material presented then. For others, this offers an opportunity to “get started” in meeting the Core requirements, or to “add on to” Core training obtained elsewhere. This workshop will be a well-rounded review, covering only in part several Core topic subjects. 2017 alone will not meet all the required core requirements, but attending both this year and next year will meet all your requirements for core content.
