CGTC Paramedicine Students Ready for December Graduation 

November 21, 2023

Warner Robins, Ga. – Central Georgia Technical College (CGTC) will be graduating a set of Paramedicine students from its Macon, Putnam and Warner Robins Campus in December.  

Macon Paramedic Cohort, the EMS Education Warner Robins Cohort, and the Putnam County Fire Department Advance Emergency students are graduating December 2023.  

Students and their faculty are excited to see their skills translate into the local paramedicine workforce.  

“CGTC trains and educates healthcare professionals at all levels, including EMT’s, AEMT’s and Paramedics. These graduates embody the CGTC EMS Education’s values: Integrity, Compassion, Accountability, Respect, and Empathy. When called to help, these graduates will tell their patients, I CARE,” said James Travers, Paramedicine Instructor. “Our Central Georgia community benefits from graduating these new AEMT’s and Paramedics. When our community calls 911 for a medical emergency or traumatic injury, their call for help can be answered by one of CGTC’s AEMT or Paramedic graduates. Our local employers have new healthcare professionals to staff ambulances to answer 911 calls and provide medical transportation to those in need.”  

The Macon Paramedic cohort has completed 16 months of paramedic education including 270 clinical (ER, ICU, OR, and L&D) hours and 300 field (ambulance) hours. Both cohorts will test for National Certification from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. 

In addition, members of Putnam County Fire Department are graduating from the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician program held at the Putnam Campus of CGTC. Their training includes starting IV’s, giving some medications including IV fluids, and leading patient care. Each student completed 200 hours of classroom education and 96 hours of internship in emergency departments and ambulances.
