The Regional Hospital-Pelham Specialty Training Consortium -Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP). This letter is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.

The Regional Hospital-Pelham Specialty Training Consortium – Paramedic program offers paramedic training resulting in a program certificate allowing students to sit for the National Registry psychomotor and written examinations. The training program is designed to prepare students to become entry-level paramedics capable of administering emergency care and point of injury management to critically ill or injured patients in out of hospital settings, emergency rooms, and some clinics.
This program is conducted in an accelerated format and requires a full time commitment to training. Students must have a completely open calendar for the duration of the course. Students should expect to be in classroom, lab, study session, or scheduled for hospital and ambulance shifts on a daily basis.
This format best serves students with experience or exposure to academy style or “pipeline” training such as military, professional firefighters, and experienced EMT’s.
The cost for the Paramedic Program is 13,500.00. This includes textbooks, lab fees, clinical shirts, scheduling, ACLS, PALS, PHTLS, NREMT psychomotor examination and first attempt NREMT written exam.
