GEMSA - Trauma Courses Application Closing April 20, 2019

The Georgia EMS Association has partnered with the Georgia Trauma Commission to facilitate the distribution of funds earmarked for coordination and delivery of approved Trauma Courses for Emergency Services personnel.

The purpose of this is to provide lead instructors with the information necessary to seek approval through GEMSA for the use of these funds.

Currently, additional funds are approved to cover course expenses for 9 Pre-Hospital Trauma Life Support, International Trauma Life Support, Geriatric Education for EMS and Emergency Pediatric Care programs at a maximum of $5,750.00 per course (as designated by the GEMSA Trauma Course Grant Agreement. ALL applicants awarded grants must sign and initial.)

These funds are provided to ensure participants can attend these programs at no charge.  Our goal is to reach ‘statewide’ and make this training accessible to as many providers as possible.  The class must be an ‘open’ registration course and not limited to a specific set group.  This is a competitive Grant.

The Course link will be available through the close of business on April 20, 2019 to submit your application. This will allow preparation time for you to prepare a detailed budget (which will be required on the application site).

Your course must be fully completed with the official course roster, official course invoice, instructor w-9s and any necessary receipts submitted prior to October 15, 2019.
