The NASEMSO EMS Education Committee serves as a resource for state EMS officials that are tasked to implement the consensus-based approach to EMS education described in the EMS Education Agenda for the Future: A Systems Approach published by the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) and the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) in 2000, as revised by the National EMS Advisory Council in 2014.


The purpose of the Education Committee is to establish a system of EMS education that more closely parallels that of other health care professions while providing resources to advise states on matters related to EMS education, certification, continuing education, and program credentialing.

Gap Analysis Templates

  • 2009 National EMS Education Standards Gap Analysis TemplateThis Gap Analysis is intended for use by States, educators and others as they begin to define the specifics of what will be different at the state and local level between current EMS education delivery and future EMS education delivery. States will find this useful to consider “gaps” between an existing scope of practice compared to what may be implemented under the new SOP model and the Education Standards. Educators may similarly use this document to begin identifying educational content that will need to be accounted for in the transition of existing EMS personnel as well as the delivery of new programs in the future. Publishers may find it helpful in the development of adjunct material to support the implementation of the Education Agenda.
  • 2013 Pediatric Considerations for Implementing the National EMS Education Standards – This compendium is intended as a companion document to the 2009 Gap Analysis Template.
