The Rural Nevada EMS Conference is an annual three-day conference that helps Nevada's EMS personnel better serve their rural communities. Our goal is to provide quality education to rural providers from EMR to Paramedic. Quality speakers from around the country as well as local speakers are brought in to share their knowledge. Classes are taught to meet the needs of the rural providers and provides continuing education units (CEUs) for re-certification.


Attendees also have the opportunity to network with fellow rural EMS personnel from across the state as well as neighboring states. While participants appreciate receiving state-approved CEUs, some of the most valuable learning comes from the sharing of expertise among fellow EMS personnel. In addition, this networking promotes comradery for many individuals who often live in isolated communities

The conference is self-funded with support from Nevada State EMS, local mines, vendors, and various sponsors. This allows for relatively low conference fees and a limited number of scholarships.2020 Annual Rural Nevada EMS Conference - ZOOM Into EMS

As you all may know, the in-person EMS Conference has been canceled for 2020.

For the 29th Annual Rural Nevada EMS Conference, we are offering on-line classes free of charge for all to take care of CEUs for the year. We have been able to find great speakers who are willing to help us out and teach these sessions via Zoom. We are unable to offer the recorded classes at a later time for viewing.

We are also offering in person CPR Renewal and Skills check classes in Elko that are limited to six per class. We have two instances of both classes to make sure all those who need it are able to attend. We will offer more of these classes if the need arises.

If you are not familiar with Zoom, it is a very easy to use platform. For your first time using, please start the process approximately 15 minutes before the class starts. Depending on your choices you can download Zoom or use with a browser. Also, please enter your full name when you log in so we know who you are and can let you in the class. You will enter a waiting room initially and I will let you in once I recognize your name from the registration. The class will be open approximately 15 minutes early to allow people to hook up. Once the class is complete and attendance verified, we will send a certificate for each class.

You must register for all classes separately in Eventbrite. The URLs for registration are on the schedule. All class registration pages will be open one month in advance, except for September's of course. You will receive an email with a link to join the class after you have finalized your registration.

Please download the schedule to see the list of classes, dates, and the link for registration.
