Distributive Education
Distributive education is defined by the continuing Commission on Accreditation for Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) (formerly CECBEMS) as “…an educational activity in which the learner, the instructor, and the educational materials are not all present at the same time, and students and instructors are not able to interact in real time. CE activities that are offered online, via CD-ROM or video, or through reading journal articles or listening to audio tapes are usually considered by CAPCE (formerly CECBEMS) as distributed learning” (CECBEMS, 2015). CECBEMS uses the F3 designation for distributive education. Other CAPCE designations F1 (one-time events), F2 (multiple-event activities), and F5 (Virtual Instructor Led Training-VILT) are not classified as distributive education.


To be used effectively, these programs must be developed by credible sources, be medically accurate and educationally sound. These programs should be accredited by state, CAPCE, or other accrediting bodies and include some form of outcome measurement.
