The doors of emergency constitute an important observatory of the population?s health status and health system performance. In recent years, there has been a growing demand for services in emergency care, but there is a low investment in human resources and permanent education projects that improve the quality of professionals working in these services and in the care provided to the population. This study aims to identify the use of permanent and/or continuing education as management strategies in the service of Mobile Emergency Care of a city in the state of Sao Paulo-Brazil, in view of the coordinator and the nursing staff. It is a qualitative study that used the thematic content analysis proposed by Bardin for data analysis. Interviews were conducted with 7 nurses, 22 nursing assistants and team coordinator. The present study found that permanent education is still incipient in this service and that workers are not aware about the difference between this strategy and continuing education. There are gaps in communication and supervision as well as incipient use of protocols. The educational needs reported by the workers have not been addressed, since there is little participation or debate. Thus, to have an improvement in quality of care, emergency services required the listening to the difficulties pointed out by workers, the development of more frequent educational activities focusing on the reality of the service, besides the use of permanent education as a strategy to resolve the problems.
