Reinventing Recert
Exploring National Registry Recertification: Past, Present and Future
Show Notes

Join host Mark Terry and special guest Bill Seifarth, executive director of the National Registry, as they recall their first encounters with recertification and how they became involved in the field of EMS. Bill talks about how they went from hundreds of mailed-in paper applications to today where practitioners can upload their courses right on the app.

Later in the episode, Mark shines a light on some potential pathways for the future such as computer-based simulation, more defined high-fidelity simulation, adaptive educational programs to individualize content to each student, and even the practice of breaking down the "recert by exam" into smaller pieces in a more distributed environment.
