Enhance your career opportunities in emergency medical care or augment training in nursing and allied health careers. This course meets the Idaho and national requirements for applying for certification as an EMT. The curriculum is designed to familiarize you with basic emergency medical equipment and treating the sick and injured.  Upon course completion, students must pass both a state skills exam and a national written exam for certification.  

Additional costs will include: textbook, testing fees, immunizations, and Healthcare Provider CPR training.  NOTE: Healthcare Provider CPR certification is required within the first two weeks of class and is NOT included in the EMT course costs. As a part of this course, all students will complete a background check during the first weeks of class. Students should contact the department prior to signing up if concerned about their criminal background history. For the first day of class, participants will need to bring one form of government issued photo I.D.

Program Highlights:

  • Prepare for immediate employment as an EMT upon program completion.
  • Convenience: Evening and weekend course hours.
  • Low student/instructor ratio in hands-on training
  • Due to the EMT role, caring for humans, and lack of direct supervision, agencies require both EMTs and EMT students to pass a background check. The cost of a background check is included in the course fees.
    • Passing or failing the background check is dependent on type of crime and/or when it occurred – Information of this nature is included on the Idaho Criminal History Unit website at:
