EMT Certificate - 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.

Important note: A student will NOT receive a tuition reimbursement if he is dismissed from or fails EMT 100, or if he withdraws from the course after the College drop deadline.

Students are responsible for buying the correct textbooks and being aware of classroom changes, etc., through MyPima. Students can learn what books are needed for courses by going to their Book List channel in MyPima or clicking on a course's CRN in the online Schedule of Classes.

Also, be aware that the state and national exams require a fee.  For more details, contact the EMT Service Center, 520-206-7839.
