How long is the EMT Advanced course?

 

The EMT Advanced course exceeds the DOT National Curriculum and includes 94.5 hours of instruction.

The course consists of classroom instruction and practical skill labs, as well as clinical time in the hospital emergency room.

Classes are 2 nights per week, Tuesday and Thursday, 5:30-10:00 P.M.

 

What is the cost of the course?

 

 

Tuition $850.00
Tuition includes
  • EMT Advanced Course
  • Textbook and workbook
  • Course lab fees
  • Course handouts
  • Equipment and supplies
  • Notarized applications for the State
BEMS Certification fees
  • $80 = Resident fee
  • $115 = Non-resident fee (considered non-resident if you have lived outside of Utah within the last 5 years. You will also be required to complete finger-printing for application.)
  • Note: The BEMS certification fee is for testing and application processing done by the State of Utah. The fee is not included in your tuition, and needs to be a separate check or money order made out to BEMS (they don't accept cash or credit card). This fee is due at your registration appointment which is held the Saturday prior to class beginning.
  • The State also requires you to provide documentation of having a TB test within the last year, you will need to bring this information to your orientation if you have it.  This is a simple test which we can administer the first night of class for a cost of $10 if you have not had one within a year.

 

 

Do you offer tuition assistance, financial aid, or payment plans?

Directions:

From the I-15 12300 S. exit go East approximately 1 block through the first light. We are located on the South side of 12300 S. directly South of the Guadalahonky's mexican restaurant. We are between Allstate and Post-Net.

 

 

 

What is the average class size?

 

Classes are limited to 20 students and fill quickly. Register early to reserve your position in the class.

Classes are unlike other college-level courses and multiple instructors are utilized during practical sessions to assure the personal attention required for learning advanced skills.

 


How long will my EMT Advanced certification be good for?

 

The state EMT Advanced certification is valid for a period of 4 years.

During that time you will be required to maintain your certification by accumulating continuing medical education credits.

Once your 4 year period is up you may recertify your EMT Advanced for another 4 years by taking the state written recertification test.

 

 

What equipment will I need?

 

All of the equipment you will utilize during class is provided by the Academy.

 

 

Are there any pre-requisites?

 

Yes. The State requires you to be a Certified EMT prior to taking the Advanced course. (Note: A recent rule change at the State level has now eliminated the old requirement of being certified for six months or a year prior to going on to an Advanced course.)

You must also hold a current CPR certification card. If you do not currently have a valid CPR certification we offer the American Heart Association Healthcare Provider certification course every two weeks. To register for the next CPR course click here.
