When an institution or program is accredited, it has demonstrated that they meet the standards set by the organization representing the academic community and professionals. To maintain accreditation the institution or program must undergo a similar review on a regular basis. Typically accreditation reviews are conducted every five years.
In a continued commitment to the citizens of Gwinnett County, the department has worked diligently over the last five years to exceed standards set forth by CAAHEP which resulted in a successful reaccreditation process on July 21, 2016. The next reaccreditation will occur in 2021 and the department is committed to the continuous enhancement of its programs and educational standards.
The Gwinnett County Department of Fire and Emergency Services is 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 (CoAEMSP).Commission on Accreditation of
