Who are Medrills for?
Medrills applications are created for the Medical Professional wanting to improve training comprehension and skills and to review procedural concepts. Currently we are focused on providing Medrills apps for EMTs, Paramedics, and Combat Medics but will also provide apps for Nurses in the future. The apps can be used by those doing their initial training or by those already certified who want to enhance their knowledge.
How does Medrills benefit my training?
The applications are created with you in mind, so they are easy to use and provide detailed information along with realistic visuals to stimulate learning. The interactive exercises reinforce key concepts and techniques that are important to remember. By using Medrills, you will see exactly what steps need to be taken during each medical procedure, strengthening your professional knowledge.
EMTs and Paramedics: You can earn Continuing Education Credit Hours (CEH or CEU) accredited by CAPCE. This is a great way to get CEUs in an affordable and convenient way while enhancing your skills.
Are the CECBEMS credits available on all of your applications?
Continuing Education Credits are currently only available on our EMT/Paramedic applications, for both Android and iOS platforms. We are currently not offering Continuing Education on our Medrills for the Military applications.
