Continuing Education

Holy Spirit Emergency Medical Services has been accredited by the Pennsylvania Department of Health as a Continuing Education Sponsor. In addition to providing programs for our own staff, we provide DOH approved con-ed for the EMS community on both the ALS and BLS levels.

In cooperation with the Education Department at Holy Spirit Hospital, we provide American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) and Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) programs. Two-day provider and one-day refresher programs are available. CPR and CPR Instructor classes are also available.  To inquire or register for AHA ACLS, PALS, or CPR classes, please call the Holy Spirit Health System Registration line at 717-972-4262.

We also offer International Trauma Life Support (ITLS) Provider and Refresher courses at both the Basic and Advanced levels, as well as ITLS Instructor courses.

Holy Spirit EMS has many experienced field personnel and EMS educators on staff. If your EMS organization is interested in hosting a Holy Spirit EMS sponsored program, please contact Andy Snavely, EMT-P, Continuing Education Supervisor at (717) 972-4076. We can address nearly any topic and will be glad to work with you in meeting your educational needs.

Prices for programs are very reasonable, as they are typically calculated to cover only our costs for time and materials.
