GeorgiaEMSAcademy.com EMT Programs
Thank you for your interest in GeorgiaEMSAcademy.com. We take pride in providing the most interesting and effective training in out-of-hospital medicine to students all over Georgia. Our motto is "Talk is Cheap" because when students come to class, they are expected to learn the skills and then demonstrate their proficiency to the satisfaction of the Lead Instructor of the course. Students complete a rigorous list of assignments between in person training sessions and are supervised by the Lead Instructor. Students are issued uniforms and expected to be prepared for each training session. You will be eligible to take the National Registry Exam when you complete our program.
Our programs are tough and we demand a lot from our students. Our programs are not cheap. Good students are literate, mature, and have a reason to be in our class. The in- person parts of our courses are completely dominated by skills training and verification. There is no lecture, if you don’t understand something, you have to ask a question (we don’t read minds). We demand that our students be good with their hands and have some level of mastery over the basic skills of our profession. By the time you complete our program, you will be able to operate a stretcher, possess excellent airway and patient assessment skills, be able to perform CPR on anybody at anytime as well as utilize an AED. Our programs are rigorous and require serious students.
Why zero? When a computer counts something, it starts at zero. Since everything you will do as a GeorgiaEMSAcademy.com student is counted by our server and tracked in our database, zero is where you start.
The GeorgiaEMSAcademy.com EMT-Online Program is delivered over 12 weeks. Training is conducted every one to two weeks at locations unique to each offering of the program. We believe that EMT's and AEMT's must be proficient in the basic skills of our business. These skills are patient assessment, spinal immobilization, resuscitation, CPR, lifting and moving patients, and airway management. This philosophy comes from years of training and remediating students in the field. We focus on what you need to know in order to make it through your first year of employment. Our program has been very successful at getting students into the workforce.
We never said this course would be easy, just that you can complete it in three months. We don't just give our students what they need to pass the National Registry exam, we provide our students with the solid foundation they need to build a successful career in the EMS industry. GeorgiaEMSAcademy.com has always been about training students to excel at the job of running EMS calls. Anybody can carry an EMT or AEMT card, but our students can actually do the work. Our programs can put you 'In Service' quicker and better than any other program.
Our teaching methods are extremely different from other programs. Our goal is to teach all the various parts of the DOT National EMS Education Standards with cleverly planned and executed training exercises called clusters. A group of students will be divided into smaller groups of 6 or less students trained by a georgiaemsacademy.com EMS Instructor or adjunct. This out of the box way of training is extremely effective in terms of how much you can learn in a short period of time. After you have mastered a collection of skills, you put it all together in an 'epiphany'. Some epiphanies come everytime you come to class; other epiphanies you have to wait for. For instance, an EMT student is taught every component patient assessment before a realistic scenario is ever presented. Without ever being coached on how to use all of these skills together, most of our students perform at very high levels during our summative evaluation process. The result: actually learning has taken place without the benefit of a student spending hours memorizing unrealistic skill sheets or other worthless training method. Why all the emphasis on speed and efficiency? Because that is what EMS is actually supposed to be about, saving lives and minimizing injury through training and technology. The cost and time spent in our programs is very much in line with the wage you can expect to earn actually working on an ambulance. Our programs are designed to put qualified people into the EMS workforce, today.
In order to graduate, students must complete all of their assignments online. The assignments come from a variety of places, textbooks, medical journals, army publications, and items developed by the Lead Instructor. The idea is that the entire scope of the DOT National EMS Education Standards as well as the current AHA Emergency Cardiac Care guidelines are presented and tested on the students own time. The result is simple, you are taking an entire course twice during the time period alloted.
