CME Courses and the Service

To receive credit for all Self-paced CME Courses, you must successfully complete the Self-paced CME Course that you purchased. To receive credit for all Instructor-led CME Courses, you must successfully complete all the classes in the series (the “Modules”) for the Instructor-led CME Courses listed at the time of purchase (which may be modified by MedEdNow, LLC if required by state accreditation).
- Payment must be made in full at the time of purchase. No refunds will be given once CME Courses are purchased. Payment includes electronic copies of course materials necessary to take all CME Course Modules included in the CME Courses, including electronic copies of all course materials (including any CME books), access to the MedEdNow, LLC course site, and, submission of your successful completion of the full CME Course to the state accreditation body that you request information be sent to when you have purchased the Instructor-led CME Course, or, in the case of Self-paced CME Courses, upon completion of any purchased Self-paced CME Course.
- Start Date. For all Instructor-led CME Courses, all Modules in your Instructor-led CME Courses must be completed within two years of purchase to receive accreditation. For all Self-paced CME Courses, including those that OSHA credit is available, all modules in your Self-paced CME Courses must be completed within one year of purchase to receive accreditation.
- Webinars are available as scheduled. Class space is limited so you must sign in as soon as registration opens to ensure a spot in the CME Module. However, registration in the CME is not guaranteed if the CME Module reaches it maximum student limit at any time. If there are no spaces available, you can still participate in an on-demand version of the webinar.
- Self-Paced Courses are available twenty-four hours a day, seven days a week except during schedule maintenance and emergency downtimes. You must complete the Self-paced Course and any associated Activities and/or Testing in order to receive you accreditation.
- CAPCE accreditation requires that the student’s course completion records be reported to the CAPCE AMS and that they may be accessed by or shared with such regulators as state EMS offices, training officers, and NREMT on a password-protected need-to-know basis. This provides redundancy and is an easy way for regulators to verify student participation. In addition, students can review their personal course completion records by contacting CAPCE.
