The Department of EMS Education and Staff Development is committed to evolving the field of Emergency Medical Services. We are committed to developing EMS providers into technically-skilled critical thinkers who are highly-motivated, ethical healthcare providers.
Continuing education is a valuable two-tier process. Tier One introduces innovations and new technologies for patient care and transport. Tier Two refreshes and reinforces previously acquired knowledge by revisiting topics and modalities of patient care.
The Education Department also provides continuing education by offering classes sponsored by the American Heart Association, the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians, and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. Classes offered by Grady EMS include, but are not limited to:
- Basic life support
- Advanced cardiac life support
- Pediatric education for pre-hospital providers
- Emergency Pediatric Care
- Pre-hospital trauma life support
- Advanced medical life support
- Geriatric emergency life support
