Paramedic Program Reaccredited

Paramedic Program Reaccredited

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) has awarded continuing accreditation to the Emergency Medical Services Paramedic program at Cleveland Community College.


This means the EMS Paramedic program meets standards developed by professionals within the discipline. These standards are intended to reflect what a person needs to know and be able to do to function successfully and provide safe, appropriate care as a paramedic.

The process of obtaining and maintaining accreditation requires external verification, review and validation. As a CAAHEP-accredited program, CCC’s EMS Paramedic program submits outcomes to the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoA EMSP) for an annual review and goes through a comprehensive site visit review with CAAHEP every five years.

The next comprehensive evaluation of the program, including a site review, is scheduled to occur no later than 2027.
