Emergency Medical Services
Students without previous EMS experience, who have exited Learning Support Courses, may take additional courses concurrently with the first and second semesters of the EMS certificate program. After successful completion of the second semester, FAST-TRACK students are eligible to take the National Registry EMT-Intermediate certification exam, which would qualify them for entry in to the EMS job market in Georgia. After successful completion of the third semester, FAST-TRACK paramedic students are eligible to take the NREMT Paramedic certification exam. After passing the exam, NREMT paramedics are licensed to practice by the Emergency Health Section of the Georgia Department of Human Resources and allowed to perform advanced life support procedures under physician direction in the state of Georgia.
