Montana Board of Medical Examiners

Emergency Care Provider (ECP)

Attention Emergency Care Providers:

outbreak many of the continuing education(CE) venues and refresher courses are being cancelled, leading to increased difficulty for ECPs to meet the CE requirements pursuant to Montana Administrative Rule 24.156.2718.

The Department is unable to extend the renewal period for ECP licenses but will allow additional time to fulfill the requirements for refresher and other continuing education. When renewing online or by paper application, ECPs will need to attest to their understanding of the process and fulfill their CE requirements as soon as possible.   However, audits will not be conducted for at least six to eight months to give ECPs additional time to complete the refresher course and CE requirements.

 The Department strongly urges all ECPs that have licenses that will expire on March 31, 2020 to renew the license regardless of whether or not they have obtained the proper amount of CE.   The Department is diligently planning an alternative to our normal audit process to account for licensees that were not able to meet their CE requirements due to the recent outbreak.
