A hybrid of our EMT Training Program with virtual componets. All lectures will be done via Zoom with a live instructor twice a week, while all Skills are done in person on the weekend at our Santa Cruz office.
The EMT Course has three components:
- Didactic/Lab (165 Hours): technical, theory and practical hands-on education
- Clinical (24 Hours): field training (ambulance, emergency room and high fidelity simulation)
- Testing (Includes Didactic Hours): quizzes, tests, midterm, and final exam (theory and skills)
Through lectures, interactive presentations, psychomotor training, and simulations, EMT students build the knowledge and skills to care for patients.
Upon successful completion of this course, the student will be eligible to take the National Registry (NREMT) Exam required prior to applying for State EMT certification.
Students will be required to purchase the eBook during orientation and a link to this will be provided (Approx $250). This includes online access to the course curriculum (quizzes, tests, supplemental study materials and the digital eBook). The physical book is available for purchase however, this does not replace the required eBook.
