The purpose of the Emergency Medical Services Officer Credentialing Commission (EMSOCC) is to implement and oversee the administration of a professional credentialing program for EMS officers in paramedicine and related organizations on behalf of NEMSMA. The commission is structured as a semi-autonomous body, representative of the broader paramedicine community, to protect against any undue influence by the NEMSMA membership or Board of Directors that may compromise the integrity of the certification process.

The 13 commission members will provide expert advice on the process and procedures required to implement and maintain a professional credentialing program established by NEMSMA.

The commissioners will regularly review and recommend to the NEMSMA Board of Directors updates to the competencies for paramedicine officers. They will oversee the development and administration of reliable examinations for various officer levels.

Commission members shall not be required to have particular qualifications or organizational affiliations. NEMSMA will consider individual and organizational affiliation in a reasonable attempt to include a broad array of EMS System models and EMS partners.

EMSOCC is a vital component of The 7 Pillars of EMS Officer Competency and an excellent way for NEMSMA members to make a difference and move our profession.
