First Coast Technical College’s Paramedic Program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (caahep.org) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).
The CoAEMSP Quality Improvement (QI) subcommittee has reviewed the 2021 Annual Report and below you will find the Outcomes submitted by the Program in its 2021 Annual Report.
NREMT/State Written Exam: 81
Positive (Job) Placement rate: 100
During the August 2021 CoAEMSP Board of Directors meeting, the Board voted to waive minimum outcomes performance thresholds for the 2020 and 2021 Annual Report as they acknowledged the pandemic’s disruptive effect on all Paramedic programs. Therefore, the inability to meet any of the three identified outcomes on the 2020 or 2021 Annual Report will not be a consideration when evaluating a program’s performance.
As a reminder the minimum outcome performance threshold established by the CoAEMSP Board of Directors is 70% for National Registry or State Written Exam, Retention, and Positive Placement. When evaluating a program’s outcomes performance, three years of consecutive data (2022, 2023, and 2024) will be considered.
CoAEMSP Policy IV.D.1. & 2. Maintaining Accreditation – Annual Report states
- “All programs (accredited and LoR) must publish their latest annual outcomes results for the National Registry or State Written Exam, Retention, and Positive Job Placement on the Paramedic program’s homepage of their website.”
- “At all times, the published results must be consistent with and verifiable by the latest Annual Report of the program.
