Continuing Education/CEUs

General Continuing Education

Continuing education is an important part of maintaining up-to-date knowledge and training, and it is required to maintain many licenses and certifications. This applies not only to first responders and emergency personnel, but professionals in other career fields as well.

In cooperation with University of Maryland, Baltimore County (UMBC) Department of Emergency Health Services Professional and Continuing Education (PACE), all ICISF participants with verified attendance for the World Congress 16 are currently pending for general Continuing Education Units (CEUs) on their Certificates of Attendance. This service is offered at no additional charge to participants.  These CEUs are awarded based on a formula of 1 Continuing Education Unit for every 10 contact/classroom hours.  It is the responsibility of the participant to determine if his or her licensing board will accept these continuing education units (CEUs).

ICISF strongly recommends that participants in all ICISF courses, whether at a Live Training, the World Congress, Online Courses, or a course taught by an Approved Instructor, retain all Certificates of Attendance for those courses in a safe place. ICISF is not currently able to provide an individual with a transcript of courses attended. Certificates of Attendance are your best proof of attendance at ICISF courses.

NOTE: ICISF certificates of attendance are not proof of profession specific CE/Contact Hours.

Participants are encouraged to check course details and verify acceptance with their specific organization or licensing board.
