If you are a program director of a CoAEMSP Letter of Review or CAAHEP accredited Paramedic Program, then you received in January the Excel-based Annual Report form from the email
. If you did not receive this email, first check your junk and spam folders. If the email is still not there, then email
and let us know! Annual Reports are due no later than March 30.
The Annual Report is based on the 2018 calendar year and its graduates, and is due March 30, 2020. This allows the program at minimum one (1) year to gather all relevant data and allows sufficient time to send out and gather results for the Graduate and Employer Surveys for the applicable annual report year.
Paramedic education programs are required to submit an annual report that encompasses the following three (3) key metrics:
2. Positive Placement
3. Success on the credentialing written (cognitive) exam.
All CAAHEP accredited and CoAEMSP Letter of Review (LoR) programs will be required to complete the Annual Report and publish the outcomes from their annual report on their website. Outcomes will be for the year reported (and no longer based on a 3-year average).
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.
Failure to submit an annual report by the due date will be assessed $500. Additionally, any program failing to submit the original annual report by the due date will be recommended to CAAHEP for Administrative Probation. Failure to address Administrative Probation may lead to a recommendation by CoAEMSP to CAAHEP for Withdrawal of Accreditation.
The fee and the recommendation for administrative probation are not intended to be punitive; they are intended to reinforce the importance of submitting on time. When reports are not submitted on time, additional work is incurred by staff – work that can be prevented. Remember, submit on or before March 30!
