Dr. Michael Dailey of the Albany Medical Center Emergency Department has prepared a training video for the new Collaborative Protocols. It is approximately two hours in length, and can be accessed by clicking here. If you have difficulty opening the video, download RealPlayer (it's a free download available on the internet).
Please note that a TEK is not able to be credentialed to practice under the new protocols until completion of the protocol exam, and may only function with an agency that has been approved for protocol implementation by submission of the appropriate paperwork (see below to download a copy). The Paramedic, Critical Care and Intermediate level credentialing exams are now all available online. The training video should be viewed before taking the exam.To access the test site, click here.
Agencies are allowed
to implement the new protocols as soon as all their TEKs are credentialed
and the agency has submitted a completed implementation request to the regional
office. The request must be signed by both the agency chief operating officer
and the agency medical director. For a copy of the request form, click
