EMTs are first responders who critically assess, evaluate, and treat patients. They work on ambulances, in fire departments or hospital emergency departments, and on search and rescue teams.

With over 4,000 jobs in California available, EMTs are always in demand and can be the first step to several specialized career opportunities. California EMTs have an average salary of $53,000, 9% above the national average.

The EMT course is a hybrid program consisting of 50% online and instructor-led lectures and 50% labs. Our EMT Program satisfies all training guidelines established by the California Emergency Medical Services Authority and is authorized to run through our adult school and community college partnerships.

Upon graduation, students will be prepared to take and pass the national exam for EMT Certification through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). Students can then apply for state licensure in California. CALRegional students have a 90% national exam passing rate, over 26% more than our competitors.

EMT Externship & Certification


The EMT Program includes placement into an externship at the end of the course. A clinical externship is required in California in order to obtain state licensure. The experience helps our students get their foot in the door faster because they are job-ready. Many of our students are recruited during their time in our program, even before they graduate.


Tuition at CALRegional 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.
