National Accreditation and State ApprovalThe purpose of accreditation is to assure students a sound, quality educational experience. All of the programs in the School of Health professions are accredited by the various non-governmental and governmental agencies responsible for conducting peer evaluations of health-care related educational programs.
Program accreditation is an ongoing process, as the EMT Program must constantly monitor its progress in meeting the standards established by both the CAAHEP/CoAEMSP and the MEMSB through continual quality improvement and quality assurance evaluations, and yearly reports to the accrediting agencies.
The Community College of Baltimore County Emergency Medical Technology Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (www.caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) and is approved as a Maryland EMS Educational Program by the Maryland Emergency Medical Services Board (MEMSB) upon the recommendation of the Maryland Institute for Emergency Medical Services Systems (www.miemss.org).
