Paramedic Program Hosts Accreditation Visit

March 27, 2015

The College of Western Idaho (CWI) Paramedic program hosted a site visit in March as part of its effort to achieve national accreditation. The program, which is offered through CWI’s Workforce Development division, is seeking accreditation through the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoEMSP). CoEMSP sent two evaluators to review the Paramedic program for initial accreditation. Feedback CWI has received indicates the visit was highly successful.

The program is seeking accreditation to ensure the program’s quality instruction meets national standards, which are maintained by the CoEMSP in an independent, objective peer-review manner. The accreditation standards also help ensure students are prepared to deliver adequate care for the community upon graduation.
