Office Closing and Limited Access to Staff
The office will be closed on Monday, February 18 in observance of Presidents Day.

In addition, staff will be actively participating in an all-staff development workshop February 26-27-28; therefore, they may not be readily accessible during that time, but will respond to requests as quickly as possible.

Thank you for your understanding!

Your Annual Report is Due March 15!
Program Directors of CoAEMSP Letter of Review programs and CAAHEP accredited Paramedic programs received an email in mid-January from AnnualReports@coaemsp.org . This email provided instructions for downloading and completing the CoAEMSP Annual Report, which is due March 15.

If you did not receive that email, email AnnualReports@coaemsp.org .
Tomorrow! Repeat Presentation of Webinar
Annual Report Webinar, Q&A Now Available Online
Staff Contact: AnnualReports@coaemsp.org

Did you miss the webinar on January 14 introducing the new and improved annual report? No worries; it is now available online here, along with the answers to questions asked during the January webinar.

Due to the importance of this topic, the CoAEMSP will offer the webinar again on Thursday, February 14, at 1 p.m. Central Time. The free webinar is limited to 500 registrations.
As the CoAEMSP continues to strive to become more outcomes oriented in its approach to EMS education, the evaluation of identified outcomes measures becomes increasingly important.

Paramedic educational programs are required to submit an annual report that encompasses the following three (3) key metrics:
1.   Retention
2.   Positive Placement
3.   Success on the credentialing written (cognitive) exam.

Note that the requirement to report the success rate on the credentialing psychomotor exam has been deleted from the reporting requirement: not all states require a credentialing psychomotor exam and typically use the program final testing in lieu of a secondary evaluation.

The new Annual Report is required for all CAAHEP accredited and CoAEMSP Letter of Review (LoR) programs with a due date of March 15, 2019.
