The process outlined below is for new organizations or organizations that are not considered current partners (reference REP directory to confirm). If you are a current partner and need to reapply for the 2023 cycle, please follow this process.

The new Recognized Educational Partner process was launched in June 2022 and allows the Committee to review current and future partner entities to ensure organizations are still active and upholding the standards of our guidance and training to those principles. All previous partners and new partners must complete the following steps to be approved as Recognized Educational Partners of the Committee —

  1. Complete the updated application: Copyright License Agreement. Applications should be completed by an organization not an individual instructor and must be signed. How your entity appears in the form is how it will be listed in our directory and on our website. Any organizations applying for a waiver should complete and submit along with their agreement, additional information on the waiver below. The Committee will review and follow-up with any questions.
  2. Please submit the completed agreement to This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. 
  3. Once an organization's agreement form has been approved, the Committee will issue the organization an invoice for the annual royalty fee of $100 via PayPal. If an organization is approved for a waiver, this step will be skipped for the respective entity.
  4. In return, approved organizations will receive a frontmatter slide, which must be displayed in any curriculum and a new partner logo to display on their training and marketing materials indicating their Recognized Educational Partner status with the Committee. Additionally, partners will be listed in the directory on the Committee website.
Next year during the annual partner process, organizations will need to report training requirements along with an up-to-date agreement. Training requirements include the number and type (Bystander, Non-Duty to Act [Law Enforcement, Non-EMS Fire, other public safety] Advanced Life Support/Basic Life Support) of courses delivered and number of students taught.
