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
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.

Automated External Defibrillator (AED) Training
National CPR/AED Awareness
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.
