How it works:
EMT courses are made up of two components: didactic learning and hands-on skills.
The online, self-paced didactic portion of the course is completed first. Upon registration, you will receive an online access code which you will redeem in order to begin working on the online coursework. Once you receive your access code, you will have nine (9) months to complete the course and pass all required quizzes and the final exam.
Once you complete the online didactic portion of the course, you will register for and complete an in-person skills boot camp. We hold these boot camps at least once every other month, so don’t worry if you don’t see a date far enough in the future for you. We will add additional future dates as they get closer. During your skills boot camp, you will learn and pass off all of the skills required at the EMT level and you will take your psychomotor skills exam.
Upon completion of the skills boot camp and psychomotor exam, you will be eligible to take the NREMT cognitive exam. The state of Utah requires that you pass this exam in order to become certified as an EMT. If you plan on using our program to become certified in a state other than Utah, you will still have to become Utah-certified first and then seek reciprocity with your state.
