Emergency Services

When an emergency happens, your life can change in an instance. Emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and paramedics are there for the sick or injured when people's lives depend upon their quick reactions. Become a lifesaver yourself with Gwinnett Tech's Emergency Services Education programs. You'll learn through a combination of classroom education and hands-on training to provide exceptional care.

The Paramedicine program is approved by the Georgia Department of Public Health, Office of EMS and Trauma. The EMS program is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) upon the recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation for Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Profession (CoAEMSP).
