Continuing Education Units (CEU) or Continuing Education Hours (CEH)

Benchmark's Organizational Accreditation has been renewed by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS) for another three years. CECBEMS is the national accrediting body for EMS continuing education courses and course providers. Organizational Accreditation allows Benchmark to plan, implement and evaluate its own continuing education courses as well as evaluate courses of non-accredited programs or providers such as EMS Services and Fire Departments conducting medical continuing education. The National Registry (NREMT) accepts continuing education that has received official approval through your state EMS office and or through CECBEMS. Most states, including Tennessee, accept continuing education that has received official approval through CECBEMS. State license or certification renewal questions should be directed to your state EMS office. Most answers regarding NREMT re-registration can be found on their web site, www.nremt.org.  For additional information on CECBEMS, go to www.cecbems.org.

American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Changes


The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) recently notified all of their accredited organizations that beginning June 1, 2011

contact hours can not be awarded for ACLS and PALS RENEWAL courses. This ruling is based on the rationale that renewal courses

do not change often or significantly and are meant to validate previously obtained knowledge, not to augment that knowledge.

This ruling only applies to renewal courses; initial provider courses will not be affected.

National CPR/AED Awareness Week

Thanks to the passage of a Congressional resolution, the nation honors National Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR) and Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Awareness Week the first week of each June.  

Nearly 2,000 messages were sent by AHA's You're the Cure advocates in support of this bill which will further educate Americans about the necessity of CPR and AEDs. The bill's intent is also to encourage states, cities, and towns to establish well-organized programs that provide CPR and AED training and increase public access to AEDs. The resolution, which was introduced by Representatives Randy Kuhl (R-NY) and Dan Boren (D-OK) and Senators Susan Collins (R-ME) and Russ Feingold (D-WI), passed by unanimous consent. 


National CPR and AED Awareness Week will help shine a light on sudden cardiac arrest (SCA).  Approximately one thousand (1,000) cardiac arrests occur outside of a hospital each day and only 12 percent survive. According to the American Heart Association, with CPR and early defibrillation are provided immediately victims chance of survival can double if not triple. In cities where defibrillation is provided within five to seven minutes, the survival rate from sudden cardiac arrest is as high as 49 percent.
