EMT Externship & Certification

The experience helps students get their foot in the door faster because they are job-ready. Many students are recruited during their time in the program, even before they graduate.


Tuition includes the EMT certification exam through the NREMT. Once students successfully pass the EMT class and externship and receive a certificate of completion, students are ready to take the national certification exam. Students who pass the exam may apply for state licensure through the California Emergency Medical Services Authority.
