Transition from PA Prepared to TRAIN PA

PA Prepared, the online system you use to take EMS continuing education courses, public health courses and preparedness training, is being replaced by TRAIN PA, our new learning management system. We plan for the new system to go live at the beginning of October after which you will no longer be able to access PA Prepared. To make the transition as seamless as possible we are currently populating the new system with your profile information from PA Prepared. We are also actively pursuing and uploading meaningful content for all users. To those EMS providers with certifications that expire between now and 1 January 2017, and you plan to utilize the online system, go to www.paprepared.net and complete your requirements now to ensure there are no interruptions in your registration. Not having access to an online system is not a qualifying reason to extend your registration. As a precaution, please take the time to open your record on PA Prepared and save your certificates of completion. Also, please complete any outstanding surveys from courses you have completed. Uncompleted surveys can be found by clicking the “My courses” tab from your “HOME” menu. Outstanding surveys are listed under “MY CURRENT COURSES”. You will be provided with additional details as we approach the beginning of October. Sincerely, TRAIN Pa Administrative Team
