CAPCE and Peer Reviewed Journals
The CAPCE Board of Directors strongly encourages accredited providers to
cite peer reviewed journals. Thus, the following links are offered:
CAPCE represents only that its accredited programs
have met CAPCE standards for accreditation. These
standards require sound educational offerings determined
by a review of its objectives, teaching plan, faculty,
and program evaluation process. CAPCE does not endorse or
support the actual teachings, opinions or material content
as presented by the speaker(s) and/or sponsoring organization.
CAPCE accreditation does not represent that the content
conforms to any national, state or local standard or best
practice of any nature. No student shall have any course of
action against CAPCE based on the accreditation of the material.
National EMS Museum
CAPCE is pleased to support the National EMS Museum project.
