The primary goal of any Paramedic education program is to assure students are competent at the end of the program of study. For many years the CoAEMSP has required programs to track and report minimum competencies for various age groups, complaints, and skills as specified originally in the Student Patient Contact Matrix. The National Registry required completion and attestation of a psychomotor portfolio. CoAEMSP and the National Registry assembled a workgroup to review and revise the Student Minimum Competency Recommendations to be utilized by programs for students enrolling on or after January 1, 2023. Join us as we explore the new recommendations, documentation, and student tracking.


  • Review each component of the Student Minimum Competency (SMC) recommendations.
  • Discuss implementation strategies for the SMC recommendations.
  • Illustrate SMC summary tracking requirements for CAAHEP accredited and CoAEMSP Letter of Review programs.
