The MetroAtlanta EMS Academy is devoted to providing programs that promote the professional growth and development of working Emergency Medical Technicians.   Our Instructors are highly experienced practitioners as well as experienced EMS Educators.  The Program is designed to accommodate working EMS personnel not able to attend a traditional college program.  It has been specifically designed to accommodate individuals working 24-48 hour shift rotations. 

The Paramedic Training Course is not currently open to the public

The Paramedic Class is offered annually and will prepare students with the knowledge and skills required to operate as a Nationally Registered EMT-Paramedic. Students employed full-time with Cobb County Fire Department, Marietta Fire Department, Smyrna Fire Department, Paulding County Fire Department, and Metro Atlanta Ambulance Service may be sponsored into the program by their department. All applicants must take a proctored written entrance exam and score 70 or higher and meet other pre-course requirements to be eligible to interview for the class. Scholarships may be available from your employer. You should check with your department training and education staff to see if you quality for sponsorship.

We have partnered with Kennesaw State University WellStar School of Nursing to develop a program that consist of a combination of classroom, lab, and clinical experiences that will prepare our graduates for advancement to the level of Paramedic.  Paramedic clinical experiences will develop skills, provide real life experiences and the knowledge to successfully perform the duties of a Paramedic.
