Earning CE

The CE offered by University Medical Center Emergency Medical Services (UMC EMS) of Lubbock, Texas is approved for all levels of certification under our Texas Department of State Health Services EMS CE Program license #100648.  This education may be used towards your Texas state or National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) distributive education requirements.

To earn your CE credit:

  • Choose the continuing education you’re interested in from this website.  This website is “Grand Central” for our continuing education courses, so once you chose the title you’re interested in, you’ll be redirected to the  appropriate resource. We use a variety of teaching formats to provide education for different learning styles.

If you choose a video, you’ll be redirected to our YouTube channel.  If you select a pdf or other presentation that’s downloaded to your computer, you’ll be directed to that resource instead.

  • Once you finish watching or reading the educational material, you’ll need to take a quiz to confirm you understood the important objectives.  We use QuestBase as our online quiz provider.  Log into your QuestBase account at this address: http://www.questbase.com/a/umcems

If you don’t have a QuestBase account, please email us through the Contact page.  We’ll get you set up!  You can download our tutorial  for using QuestBase and other helpful information from our Resources page.

  • Once the quiz and course evaluation are completed (and passed!), you’ll receive a personalized certificate acknowledging your education.  Keep a copy of this certificate for your records.
