CoAEMSP Accreditation

The Oakland Community College Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).  This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status; it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation.  Letter of review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT's Paramedic credentialing examination(s).  However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
