The paramedic education program is approved by the Michigan Department of Health and Human Services- Emergency Medical Services division. It is also 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 (www.coaemsp.org).
