Can a felon become a EMT in the state of GA?

It is up to the State licensing authority in GA. Some states will allow certain felonies on a record from a long time ago, some say they will not accept anyone with a felony, but never check, and others say no felons, and do a very thorough background check to find out. Check out the Georgia Office of Licensing and Regulatory Affairs online, and look at the Professional Licensing area in the EMS category. Maybe a FAQ will address it. You can also anonymously call a private ambulance company and ask for the highest ranking person during business hours. This person will know the best real world answer to this question as it relates to the state of Georgia.
