NEMSMA’s American College of Paramedicine Executives (ACPE) in conjunction with our partners at Avesta Systems are actively developing our next examination for Managing EMS Officers. This examination is scheduled to be rolled out in the Summer of 2017. An essential part of the exam development and validation process is a job analysis survey that will be used to ensure the exam appropriately matches the work done by EMS managers on a daily basis. By EMS managers we mean individuals who serve in roles, usually described as mid-level or middle management, that lie between the levels of front line supervisor and executive leadership. Typical job titles and/or ranks in such roles may include but are not limited to: battalion chief, assistant chief, shift commander, captain, major, training officer, training director, communications manager, human resources officer, quality improvement manager, finance director, information technology manager, fleet manager, logistics officer, etc.

If you, or individuals in your organization are currently serving as EMS managers in these types of roles, we could use your help! If you would be willing to participate in a comprehensive online survey about your job duties, please use the link below to sign up for this important project. After signing up your information will be forwarded to Avesta for review and you will be notified regarding further survey details.
