Paramedic training program accredited

The Bridgeport Hospital Emergency Care Institute’s paramedic training program, established in 1995 and the only Fairfield County program, is now one of only four in Connecticut to become nationally accredited. One of the oldest continually running programs in Connecticut, it recently graduated its 20th anniversary class.

The Commission on Accreditation of Allied Healthcare Education Programs (CAAHEP) recently recognized the program for meeting standards governing administration, resources, faculty and facilities. The standards were developed by paramedic professionals and reflect what an individual needs to know to perform successfully.</p?
