A couple questions regarding NR approved programs

Recommended Posts

Couple of clarifications.. I'm on the site review for CAAHEP/CoAEMSP. EMT programs do NOT have to be "accredited" program" rather only the Paramedic programs. This is OLD news. What makes the CoAEMSP special, well it is composed of EMS educators and endorsed and have participants by several EMS organizations such as National EMS Educators Association. Again, this has been in the making for the past 15+ years and NO surprise, following the national blue print.

NR has NO curriculum as well, it follows the NHTSA and AHA standards for testing. The new curriculum is no longer objective based any longer, so technically educators can emphasize areas and not follow a cookie cut program...

If you do have specific questions, as others described feel free to contact NREMT

Thanks for the clarification, Rid. I remember reading several articles on this. But with the other studying I've been doing lately the details apparently slipped my mind a bit.

ETA: Welcome back, by the way. Hope you can stick around for a bit.
