E-Licensing Errors Issues - Resolved

On behalf of everyone at the EMSRB, please accept our sincere apology for the recent online registration issues that had prevented EMS professionals from obtaining initial and renewal certifications and registrations. The EMSRB relies upon the state’s information technology division, known as MN.IT, for the online registration infrastructure and for the technical assistance when the system “crashes.”  MN.IT told us that correcting the problem was a top priority.  We thank MN.IT for identifying the root cause of the problem and for dedicating the necessary assets and resources to correct the problem.

This experience has underscored the need for this agency to have a “Plan B” for when (and sadly not if) there again is a failure of the online registration system platform that cannot be corrected promptly.  Our “Plan B” is the creation of a “manual application” process, utilizing tree-based technology and hand-held dye-delivery devices (i.e., paper and pen), that will facilitate initial and renewal certifications and registrations until the online system is “up and running.” “Plan B” has been affectionately entitled, “Operation Old School.”  In the event of such an online system outage, we will post a notice on our web site when “Operation Old School” is in effect, and we will include simple-to-follow instructions on how to complete the manual application process. 

If you ever experience any issues with the online registration process, please contact Lauran Everett at lauren.everett@state.mn.us or 651-201-2817. 

Again, we sincerely apologize for the issues and inconvenience this outage had caused.
