NAAC® – The National Academy of Ambulance Compliance for the first time ever is hosting all four NAAC certification programs at one virtual event – live and in real time - over two weeks in September. Each course features live instructors that will answer questions in real time. “These live courses offer an unparalleled opportunity to obtain all NAAC ambulance certification credentials in a dynamic and interactive setting,” said program coordinator Jason Leet. “Course enrollees will get all their questions answered live,” Leet said.
NAAC Live 2020 is different from the traditional, self-paced online courses offered by NAAC, according to Leet. During NAAC Live 2020, the courses will be presented live on specific class schedules:
Certified Ambulance Compliance Officer™ - CACO®
September 9 through 10, 2020
Certified Ambulance Coder® - CAC®
September 14 through 16, 2020
Certified Ambulance Privacy Officer™ - CAPO®
September 21 through 22, 2020
Certified Ambulance Documentation Specialist™ – CADS®

There is a registration fee for each course, which includes all course educational materials and includes the testing and certification process. Click HERE to register or obtain additional information.
“This schedule allows attendees to obtain all four of our certifications in a two-week time span as courses are staggered so there is no overlap,” added Leet. Instructors are attorneys and consultants of the national EMS law firm of Page, Wolfberg & Wirth, LLC, the nation’s leading EMS law firm - experts in ambulance industry compliance. In addition to the live instruction, course enrollees will have immediate access to each final exam, and there will be instant certification upon completion and passing the exam, said Leet.
