The Alliance Center of Education for Emergency Medical Services (ACE4EMS) Network is comprised of The Louisiana Rural Ambulance Alliance (Alliance), the Louisiana Community and Technical College System (LCTCS) and eight approved colleges withing that system, and eighteen rural EMT Providers.
ACE4EMS was formally established in the fall of 2014; informally, the ACE4EMS Network Partners have been working collaboratively since 1995 towards increasing access to care, increasing access to education, EMS specific data collection and analysis, and quality improvement initiatives.
Workforce issues are a major challenge facing the EMS industry and profession today. The ACE4EMS Network members realize that addressing the issue and augmentation of the EMS workforce issue will not come solely from within the profession.
ACE4EMS is a continuing education resource that offers online, interactive courses and content for emergency medical service professionals.
