Basic EMT - Program Costs
The EMT Certificate Program requires a significant financial outlay (tuition and fees for credit hours, plus textbooks, workbooks and supplies), as well as a major time commitment (10 hours per week in class, an additional 20 hours per week studying outside of the class, and – near the end of the course – 10 hours of clinical externships).
A student will be dismissed from the course – and will not be reimbursed tuition, fees or other costs, for accumulating a combined total of more than 10 hours of absences or tardies, or scoring less than 80 percent on a total of three (3) exams or skills tests.
Also, be aware that the state and national exams require a fee. For more details, contact the EMT Service Center, 520-206-7839.
