The Emergency Medical Technician
The Emergency Medical Technician ( EMT ) is the starting point for anyone wanting to enter into the Emergency Medical Services, or EMS. In the State of Georgia, to become an EMT one must attend and successfully complete a state approved entry level EMT course. Our EMT course is designed to prepare students in the knowledge and skills necessary to become competent emergency medical technicians in the field. It is our philosophy that mastering the craft of the EMS profession will enable candidates the ability to successfully complete the National Registry of EMT's ( NREMT ) psychomotor and cognitive exams.

We offer this program in two different pathways.

The flex pathway also known as the accelerated program allows the student to finish at their pace. You will have 12 months to complete the program but can finish it within your time frame. 5 weeks, 10 weeks, 3 months, 5 months, etc...
