What is the advantage of organizational accreditation?


After an organization has demonstrated that it meets CAPCE criteria for organizational accreditation, it is free to plan, implement and evaluate its own educational programs and to co-sponsor the CE activities of non-accredited organizations.

From a professional perspective, CAPCE accreditation shows that an organization has voluntarily submitted to an objective assessment of its ability to meet established standards for educational planning, implementation and evaluation and that it has met or exceeded those criteria. The organization that has gone through the CAPCE accreditation process has demonstrated a commitment to excellence in EMS CE. This organization also provides leadership in the EMS arena by putting EMS CE on an equal footing with that of physicians and nurses.
