    Does any know if there is a way to take AMA PRA credit hours and use them as CEUs, either with CAPCE or a state agency.

    I've reached out to my EMSA and CAPCE but, I figured I'd see if anyone else has successfully done this already.

    I've had luck with my state agency (Michigan). They ask for a syllabus and breakdown of course content and the state then makes their own determination on how many credits they will grant for the CE. I know some friends who were able to recert their state medic licenses by submitting syllabuses from nursing school. But...I don't know how unique this is to MI.

    This is what ended up working for me as well.
    My state agency had me send them the course outline and hour-by-hour schedule (which was conveniently posted on line). They accepted that and gave me full credit for 20.5 hours.
