CentreLearn Announces Free Live CE Presentation on SCUBA Emergencies

Press Release Dec 26, 2012

Shrewsbury, Penn. (December 21, 2012) — CentreLearn Solutions, the leading provider of online training for fire and emergency medical services, announced an upcoming free continuing education webinar on SCUBA emergencies, to be presented Tuesday, Jan. 8, 2013, at 12:00 p.m. EST.

This webinar, the latest in a monthly series, will feature instructor Michael Fraley, a rescue diver, SCUBA instructor and paramedic. Fraley’s presentation will review the gas laws that impact diving, explore the pathophysiology of common diving medical emergencies, and explain prehospital treatments. Registration is open now.

“Diving emergencies aren’t limited only to diving destinations—they can also happen when divers return home. That means EMTs and paramedics everywhere need to be prepared to recognize and handle them,” said Greg Friese, CentreLearn’s director of education.

“CentreLearn’s online learning technology makes it possible for EMS personnel not only to earn CE credit on a rarely presented topic like SCUBA emergencies, but to interact with the instructor during the presentation, for a deeper understanding of the material,” Friese added.

In addition to its free webinar series on EMS, firefighting and education methodology topics, personnel at CentreLearn customer agencies can choose from more than 200 hours of accredited training videos in CentreLearn’s library. CE courses can be accessed at any time, from any location with an Internet connection.

CentreLearn also offers access to its programs to individuals on a pay-per-view basis via RapidCE.com.
