At the onset of COVID-19, the EMS Certification Commission, following the lead of CoAEMSP, took measures to provide safe instructional opportunities for EMS students while maintaining high-quality experiences. Subsequently, the EMSCC made some allowances for high-quality simulations to be utilized in place of clinical experiences. These allowances were originally set to expire on October 31, 2020. Last month, the decision was made to extend the allowances for simulations until July 31, 2021.
