The accrediting organization for EMT Paramedic training education in the United States is the CoAEMSP (Committee on Accreditation of EMS Education Programs) that operates under the CAAHEP (Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs). Beginning on January 1, 2013, graduation from an accredited paramedic program will be required for those seeking certification through the National Registry.
