Classes will begin Thursday, Jan. 12, and meet each Thursday until completion on Feb. 16. Classes are from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. in Room 207 at the Continuing Education Building, located at Bainbridge Mall behind the Golden Corral restaurant.

The course has been approved by the Georgia State Office of EMS/Trauma and will satisfy mandatory National Registry training for EMTs and paramedics as well as provide continuing education hours for state licensees. It was developed following a year’s worth of planning by Randy Williams, programs coordinator of the Paramedic Technology/EMS program at the college, and EMS representatives from Decatur, Miller and Seminole counties.
