Continuing Competency

The intent of the College of Paramedics of Nova Scotia Continuing Competency Program is to ensure practitioners are aware of their ongoing obligation to engage in a practice model that encourages the individual practitioner to, not only, remain current in their practice, but to enhance and expand upon their competency development.

Paramedics are encouraged to identify and complete continuing competency activities that suit their individual practice needs, based upon the learning activities that have been approved by Council.

Ongoing Competency Opportunities is a free site for Paramedic practitioners, students and educators. Self-directed learning modules, live and recorded sessions and other programs are available from the convenience of your home and when it’s convenient for you. The live education sessions (M & M style) can be used for credit towards the required M & M sessions with your provincial registration. Emergency Medical Care Incorporated has advised the College that effective immediately, it will allow Non-Emergency Medical Care Incorporated Paramedics access to the Morbidity and Mortality sessions it offers to its own Paramedics.

The sessions are hold in conjunction with EMCI’s Performance and Development Division in partnership with the Emergency Health Services Medical Oversight Physicians. If you are interested in participating, you must contact EMCI at then, your name and email will be placed on a distribution list. The distribution list sends an automatic email invitation for all the online M & M Sessions held by EMCI
