Board of Pharmacy Approves New FEMA Courses for Free CE Credit
posted: 11/09/2011

The Michigan Board of Pharmacy has approved the FEMA Incident Command 100, 200 and 700 level courses for pharmacy continuing education (CE) credit. Each course has been approved for three hours of CE. 

]The 700 level course is an addition to the approval of the 100 and 200 level courses from 2011. IS-700 allows pharmacy professionals to learn more about incident management on a national level. The Board has recognized that pharmacists are considered first responders in a crisis, and that they tend to be placed in decision-making positions during these events. 

New for this year is also the approval of the IS-100 level course for pharmacy technician continuing education. 

The successful completion of these courses is important to accomplish so that the pharmacy profession is prepared to communicate and integrate with all agencies that would respond to any crisis event. Completion of these programs also allows you to be contacted about opportunities to plan and be involved in exercises for potential crisis events. 

Please visit the Emergency Preparedness page on the MPA Web site to access links and directions for completing these courses and receiving CE credit.
