2/22/13 UPDATE: Michigan Paramedic Accreditation
Students enrolled in a paramedic program that began prior to January 1, 2013, are eligible to take the NREMT certification exam and are not impacted by the Paramedic Accreditation.
Students entering a paramedic program after January 1, 2013, that is CAAHEP/CoAEMPS accredited or in the Letter of Review (LoR) process will be eligible for NREMT national EMS certification and reciprocity in states that require national EMS program accreditation.
Students entering a paramedic program after January 1, 2013, that is NOT CAAHEP/CoAEMPS accredited or in the Letter of Review (LoR) process that successfully complete a licensure exam (NREMT assessment exam) will be considered "state recognized" only. They will no longer be eligible for NREMT national EMS certification or reciprocity in states that require national EMS program accreditation. (This includes any state that is delaying the implementation of a paramedic program accreditation requirement.)
Students enrolling in programs not accredited by CAAHEP will forever impact their ability to seek national EMS certification or pursue reciprocity to practice as a paramedic in the majority of states/territories requiring national EMS program accreditation.
The program accreditation date does not impact the use of the NREMT exam at the MFR, EMT, or Specialist/AEMT levels. Paramedics that already possess a state license or are enrolled in programs that began prior to December 31, 2012 will not be impacted by the accreditation requirement throughout their careers and may obtain national EMS certification in the future.
