CAAHEP Accreditation Workshop
for Paramedic Programs


This workshop is designed to educate attendees on the CAAHEP accreditation process, including the self study, site visit, and maintaing accreditation.

The following will be addressed:

  • Overview of the accreditation process
  • Resources 
  • CAAHEP Standards and Guidelines (2015)
  • CoAEMSP Interpretations of the 2015 CAAHEP Standards
  • Site Visits
  • Site Visit Findings Letters & Progress Reports
  • Annual Reports
  • Deal Breakers & Other Stumbling Blocks


There is no required advance work in preparation for the workshop; however, the attendee is encouraged to:

  1. Download the Self Study Report that is appropriate to their program.
  2. Review CAAHEP’s Your Accreditation Mentor (YAM).
    YAM is a free service from CAAHEP to all program directors, but especially to newly appointed program directors, to guide their understanding of the accreditation process and to advise them on best practices. It consists of narrative pages, video vignettes, reference readings, and links to various resources. "Your Accreditation Mentor" (YAM) is about succeeding at one of the key processes of a program director's job: accreditation--assuring that their program meets or exceeds standards and therefore serves its students and other stakeholders well.
  3. Familiarize yourself with the CoAEMSP website.
    CoAEMSP has numerous resources, many of which will aid you through the accreditation process and beyond, including many articles and tools.
Please bring your laptop.
