Paramedic Class- Myths and Facts

  • MythsMyth... Paramedic Class is a 2 year degree program now.

  • Fact... Paramedic Class is NOT a mandatory 2 year degree program. While many schools are building the two year degree program for Paramedic Technology, it is not an a state or federal requirement. At FGTC we teach the Paramedic Certificate course over 13 months.


  • Myth... Accreditation requirements has stopped independent schools from teaching paramedic courses.

  • Fact... Since the 2013 accreditation changes went into effect several independent schools in Georgia have been approved by Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) to continue teaching paramedic courses. FGTC has taught Paramedic Courses for 8 years and continue to be recognized as a Paramedic training facility.


  • Fact... We currently have 3 Paramedic courses running and our next Paramedic course starts in January.... Sign up soon!!

  • Faithful Guardian Training Center has a ”Letter of Review” from Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) for the West Georgia Regional Emergency Education Coalition’s (WGREEC) Paramedic program. Although this is not full accreditation status, it is a major milestone, and means we are one step closer to gaining our accreditation. This “Letter of Review” allows us to continue with new paramedic programs past the January 1, 2013 deadline.

Accreditation Site Visit February 5th & 6th

WGREECOur site visit for our programmatic accreditation for the paramedic program occurs on February 5th and 6th. During these two days representatives from of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) will be on site evaluating our program, staff, and procedures. We would like to thank our staff, students, the West Georgia Regional Emergency Education Coalition (WGREEC), and advisory committees for their support and assistance leading to this goal.

Currently FGTC and the West Georgia Regional Emergency Education Coalition (WGREEC) are operating under a ”Letter of Review” from Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) for the West Georgia Regional Emergency Education Coalition’s (WGREEC) Paramedic program. Although this is not full accreditation status, it is a major milestone, and means we are one step closer to gaining our accreditation. This “Letter of Review” allows us to continue with new paramedic programs past the January 1, 2013 deadline.

Letter of Review is NOT a CAAHEP accreditation status, it is a status granted by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP) signifying that a program seeking initial accreditation has demonstrated sufficient compliance with the accreditation Standards through the Letter of Review Self Study Report (LSSR) and other documentation. Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT's Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.

Our continuing success depends on the dedication, hard work and professionalism of our administrative staff, instructors, clinical partners and our students. As we grow and exchange ideas on the future needs of our profession and the ways in which to best address those needs in professional education and training. Thanks for everyone’s support and assistance throughout this lengthy endeavor.
