What is CAPCE Reporting?CAPCE

Founded by The National Association of EMS Educators (NAEMSE), The National Registry of EMTs (NREMT), The American College of Emergency Physicians (ACEP) and The National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP) to promote uniform standards in EMS Continuing Education, The Commission on Accreditation for Prehospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) has provided accreditation services for EMS CE since 1992. Those services include review and accreditation of EMS CE Courses and EMS CE Provider programs, along with maintaining a database of those certifications and course completions. To ensure the integrity of the reporting data and also to ensure EMS Providers receive credit for participating in these CE Activities, CAPCE Course Completion Reports are subject to a detailed audit at the time of their submission by the CAPCE approved CE Provider. CAPCE approved CE Providers are required to certify they are able to successfully report these completions as a condition of their accreditation.

Since 2004 we have had the privilege of acting as CAPCE's primary Technical Consultant, building CAPCE's original system and all its subsequent upgrades. There is no one else who knows the CAPCE system better. We have also written the only software package in the world that fully addresses the requirements of the CAPCE reporting process, and is guaranteed to prevent the reporting of non-compliant course completion records.

If you are a CAPCE approved CE Provider, our CAPCE system technical expertise is something you should not be without. To contact us to inquire about our CAPCE Consulting Services, Please click here. For further information regarding our reporting software Please click here.

Hybrid Database Migrations with EF Core and Flyway

During development, it’s common to use EF Core migration commands to not only create migration files but to also execute migrations directly on your development database. But in production this isn’t the best idea. Learn to combine EF Core migrations and Flyway to create an explicit mechanism to perform migrations on a production database. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Exploring R and the Tidyverse Suite

Frank La Vigne continues his exploration of the R programming language for data science. This month he delves into the popular tidyverse packages, which simplify and streamline the data science process of load, prep, train and visualize. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

SAFE Stack: Functional Web Programming for .NET Core

Learn how you can use the functional F# programming language to write full stack Web applications on .NET, using the open source SAFE stack. Isaac Abraham shows how to take the best bits of ASP .NET and JavaScript and push them to the max with F#. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Accessing XML Documentation via Reflection

XML documentation on C#/F#/VB code isn’t included in the compiled code--it’s placed in a separate XML file. Because of this, you can’t normally access the documentation via reflection. However, with one loading function and a handful of extension methods on the reflection types, you can easily access the XML through reflection types. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Exploring Blockchain Consensus

The emergence of blockchain has spurred developers to study and scrutinize well-established principles and paradigms in distributed systems, and in doing so has catalyzed a wave of innovation. Learn how consensus algorithms work for blockchain and explore the widely adopted dBFT algorithm and its implementation in C#/.NET Core. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Using gRPC in a Microservice Architecture

The gRPC framework shines when used in a server-to-server scenario and preferably when caller and service evolve as part of the same development cycle. Dino Esposito shows how gRPC can be a powerful solution for microservice architectures. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Neural Binary Classification Using PyTorch

The goal of a binary classification problem is to make a prediction where the result can be one of just two possible categorical values, such as predicting the sex of a person based on their age, annual income, and so on. In this article you’ll learn how to perform binary classification using a deep neural network with the PyTorch code library. - Tue, 01 Oct 2019 10:00:00 GMT

Who're You Looking At?
