Individual candidates for Paramedic Officer credentialing at the Supervising Paramedic Officer (SPO), Managing Paramedic Officer (MPO) and Fellow in the American College of Paramedic Executives (FACPE or “Fellow”) levels are required to demonstrate a minimum number of “Qualifying Education” hours commensurate with the level of credentialing they are applying for as a prerequisite when they submit their credentialing application portfolio.
Qualifying Education is divided into “Accredited Leadership Education” (ALE) and “General Leadership Education” (GLE) hours, with a percentage of each type required for Paramedic Officer credentialing. Programs and conference sessions registered and recognized through the NEMSMA accreditation process will satisfy the Accredited Leadership Education (ALE) Qualifying Education credentialing and re-certification portfolio requirements.
