Dear Colleagues:In January 2001, The National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE) entered into acooperative agreement with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration(NHTSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) to design aninstructor preparation curriculum for EMS educators to effectively teach adult learnerswho populate the EMS classroom.Drafted by representatives of the National Association of EMS Educators along withrepresentatives from professional organizations, administrative groups, accreditationagencies, and state education agencies, this curriculum represents a common core of teaching knowledge and skills which will help all EMS educators to assist the adultlearner acquire 21st century knowledge and skills.Organizations participating with NAEMSE in the task force included:The National Association of EMTsThe National Association of State EMS DirectorsThe National Council of State EMS Training CoordinatorsThe International Association of Fire ChiefsThe International Association of FirefightersThe Committee on Accreditation of EMS ProgramsThe National Registry of EMTsThe National Association of EMS PhysiciansEmergency Medical Services for Children – National Resource Center The efforts of the task force constitute the initial step towards a coherent approach to the preparation and certification of the professional educator in the EMS setting. Thecurriculum is based upon the shared view within the EMS education community of whatconstitutes professional teaching.The task force acknowledges the variety of settings that EMS education takes place,ranging from the instruction of citizens (CPR, first aid, etc.) to graduate programs inEMS management. The task force also acknowledges the wide variance in theeducational preparation of persons who chose to teach in the EMS setting.

will assist with the implementation of the vision prescribed in the
 EMS Education Agenda for the Future: A Systems Approach
(2000). The
 Education Agenda
will createan EMS education system that “emphasizes high-level cognition, problem solving, andthe ability to deal with ambiguity and conflicting priorities”One intended outcome of this curriculum is to stimulate dialogue among the stakeholdersof the EMS education profession regarding the best thinking of their colleagues as towhat constitutes competent entry-level EMS instruction. Our work is offered to state andlocal EMS agencies and educational institutions concerned with the professionaldevelopment of EMS educators. The curriculum may serve as a resource to revisit Statestandards for training and licensing of new EMS educators or as part of the eventual process for national accreditation of EMS education programs. It is only with consensusamong EMS educators that a shared vision of future EMS education will be forged.We encourage all EMS educators to consider ways that this curriculum might enhancetheir EMS teaching skills and improve the outcomes of the EMS student in the educationsystem. Our ultimate shared goal is to provide the highest level of quality patient care.Sincerely,Judith A.
