    • Submit a copy of their regions certificate to the agency(ies) where they will be practicing
    • Submit a copy of their regions certificate to the Finger Lakes Regional Program Agency along with a list of agencies where you will be practicing

Agencies

  • Agency Medical Directors should review the protocols
  • Obtain a list of providers from the Finger Lakes Regional Program Agency that have complete the Protocol Attestation and Collaborative Protocol Test

Once you have registered, you will need to wait to be verified in our region. Although the instructions state to send a copy of your provider card we are not requiring you to do so at this time. The verification may take a few days. You will then receive an e-mail to setup your password.

Some providers may already be registered in the system. Should that be the case please attempt to log in with the e-mail address that would have been used to create the account. If you do not remember that e-mail address or no longer have access to that e-mail address do not create a new account. Please e-mail Nathan Miller and include your full name, phone number, EMT number, and the e-mail address that you would like to use for access to the site.

Once you have access to the site look for the following tests under the Take a Test tab. Take the test associated with your level of care (All providers must complete the Protocol Attestation):

All Providers          Protocol Attestation (Required) v17
AEMT                    Protocol Test - AEMT v17
Critical Care           Protocol Test - Critical Care v17
Paramedics            Protocol Test - Paramedic v17
