What does this accreditation mean to Respond Right EMS Academy and their students?

The primary purpose of program accreditation is student and public protection. This is achieved by providing an independent, external, objective peer- review of institutional and/or programmatic quality as compared with accepted national standards. This protects the students’ investment in their education by ensuring they graduate from a quality program and that instructors possess adequate qualifications to teach and the necessary academic credentials. Accreditation protects the public by ensuring they receive a minimum standard of care by individuals who are properly trained.

It is our goal to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains with or without exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician and/or Emergency Medical Technician, and/or
Emergency Medical Responder levels.
