Paramedic training course (12 month course)
Our next rotation will be starting April 3, 2019. Classes will meet two days per week (Wednesday and Thursday), from 8 AM until 3 PM. APPLY NOW!
If you do not have college credit for Anatomy & Physiology, you will need to also join our accelerated A&P boot camp course which begins prior to the start of your class. This class lasts approximately one month and must be successfully completed to continue in the Paramedic program.
In order to be eligible for our Paramedic program you must have been an AEMT for over a year and have had experience on an ambulance in a 911 setting for one calendar year as well.
Once you have completed your entrance exam and background check/drug screen, you will be scheduled for an interview at the Academy. You will not be allowed to interview until you pass the ATI TEAS entrance exam and have completed the background check and drug screening.
Our course is 12-months long and costs $4,647.00. A non-refundable deposit is required prior to the start of the A&P portion of the class. The rest of the tuition amount is made in monthly installments of $1,061.75 until the remaining balance is paid in full. There is a tuition program that is available to Grady EMS employees; however you must have been a full-time Grady EMS Employee for one calendar year prior to your enrollment. The tuition base cost of $4,087.00 will be waived, but you will still be responsible for covering the fees associated with the course, which totals $560.00 and includes EMS Testing, FISDAP, National Registry CBT, and the National Registry Psychomotor Exam. You will also be responsible for purchasing your own liability insurance via a 3rd-party vender, which will cost approximately $145.00. Once you have graduated from the program you will be responsible for working at Grady EMS for 18 months. Failure to do so will revoke the tuition agreement and you will be responsible for the full amount of your tuition.
Class dates subject to cancellation if minimum enrollment is not met.
