CIS Account Setup

To register for a CIS account and get a new WV Number, you will use the CIS Public Access Site. Complete the directions below to create a CIS account.

Make sure you have a valid, working email address that you check regularly: CIS will require a correct, working email address to register for a WV Number. There are many free email services available. The web site administrator recommends GMail.

  1. Visit the CIS Public Access site and choose "West Virginia" as your state. Click "Enter Public CIS" to be taken to the CIS public access site.
  2. From the left-hand navigation bar, choose Profile, and from that menu, choose Register to Use CIS. The following screen will allow you to self-register, to create a West Virginia EMS personnel profile.
  3. Complete the required fields as indicated. If, upon entering your information, an error indicates that your social security number is already in use, please contact EMSPIC immediately. Do not falsify your social security number or date of birth to complete the form!
  4. You will be issued a WV Number. Write this number down, but don't write down your password where other people may find it! Keep your CIS account profile secure and up-to-date (you must have a valid, working email address to use CIS).

I can't log into my CIS account!

If you know your WV Number, then you have a CIS account and can log in. If you've never logged into CIS, perform the following directions:

  1. Visit www.wvemsdata.org. At the top of the page click on the CIS Login link.
  2. Your User ID is your six-digit certification number (including any leading ZEROs) and using the prefix WV - which must be capitalized (ex. WV012345).
  3. Your initial password is your social security number with NO spaces or dashes. (ex. 123456789)
  4. After signing on, the first screen you will always see is your profile page. This page contains your demographic information - those items marked with a * are mandatory fields and must be completed. (Notice that an email address is a mandatory field - the Office of EMS will be using email for the majority of its communications with certificants - so a VALID email address is extremely important.)
  5. You will be asked to change your password - select one you can remember.
  6. The next step is "signing" your security agreement. After you complete this final step you have completed setting up your CIS account.

If you followed the steps above and are still having difficulty logging into CIS, contact Robert Dozier, Data manager.
