1. Credits are LIMITED to profession, credit hours of the course, and expiration date.
Example: If you have a credit that reads:
“Good for any Emergency Medical Services course of 1hr(s) or less (No Expiration)”
This means that you can only use the credit towards a course in the Emergency Medical Services profession section that is one hour or less. This credit will not expire.
