How many credits can I obtain in one day?

For self-paced courses, you cannot exceed more than 12 hours in a 24-hour period. This is for your protection as most states will not allow you to recertify if you take more than 12 hours of self-paced training in one day.

NOTE: If you are certified in Los Angeles County, CA, you cannot exceed more than 8 hours in a 24-hour period.

For virtual, instructor-led courses and programs, there is no limit on the number of hours you can take in a day as you are required to be in a live classroom with a live instructor and other students. NOTE: It is not typical for Medic-CE to schedule an entire refresher program in a 24-hour period.

Do I need to complete the entire EMS refresher program before seeing any of my certificates?

YES – You have to complete the entire program before your certificate is available. This is the same requirement that you would have if attending a refresher program in person.

I have finished some courses in the EMS Refresher but I can’t see my completion certificates. Why?

You must finish the entire VILT program with all the courses in it before the certificate of completion is available.

Why do I need to provide my license information?

Your state and or national license information is required by accreditation agencies in order for you to receive credit for the courses that you take. This information will be printed on your course completion certificates.

NOTE: If you hold both a national and a state license, please provide both license numbers and expiration dates when registering.

I showed up a couple minutes late for class, and the educator would not let me in. Why?

Since credit hours are awarded hour for hour we require that a student be present for a minimum of 90% of the classroom time. If you show up 10 minutes past the start time, you would be below that threshold and will not be allowed in the class. You will need to take the class at another time.

If you are having technical difficulties getting in a classroom and are late because of that, please contact us so we can notify the educator and let them know to allow you in so you can finish. We STRONGLY encourage students to login 15 minutes prior to the start of a virtual, live class to ensure no technical difficulties.

What app do I need to download to access the Medic-CE virtual classrooms on my smartphone or tablet?

Medic-CE uses Adobe Connect to support our virtual classrooms. To participate in a virtual class from your smartphone or tablet, you will need to download the Adobe Connect Mobile app. Please visit the app store on your device or go to: http://www.adobe.com/products/adobeconnect/apps/adobe-connectmobile.html.

What steps must I complete to finish a VILT course?

First, you must ensure you are enrolled and scheduled to attend the live session. On the day and at the time specified, login to the live classroom. Once you have completed the live session, the educator will ensure that the student roster syncs and will then activate the exam, notifying you via email and in the Notifications section that the exam is available. This happens within 10 minutes after the completion of a live course. After successfully passing the quiz with an 80% or higher, you must then complete the post-course evaluation to receive credit and for that course to be marked as completed.

When I click on Join Session, my computer keeps asking me to download an Adobe add-on. Why is nothing else happening?

Please check your web browser preferences to ensure your pop-up blocker is NOT turned on. This should resolve the problem as this will keep the classroom from being able to open.
