While National Registry is not required to be renewed for recertification in Georgia you will need to complete a total of 40 hours of State approved EMS continuing education credits in order to maintain your license active.

We have created a list of Approved Training/Courses for licensed EMS personnel.

It is your responsibility to save all continuing education transcripts which you can provide the State should you be audited by the Georgia State of EMS and Trauma Office. Failure to provide the requested, required documentation will result in the suspension or revocation of your EMS license.

You may also contact one of our Regional EMS Program Director to find out more about additional training resources/classes which are offered in your county.
