EMT Tuition & Fees

Where you go to school matters; reputation, job fairs, experienced instructors, relationships with multiple externship sites means you get a robust program. EMT Utah enjoys some of the highest pass rates in Utah; exceeding the state and national averages. We are experts in EMT education and give you the BEST bang for your buck.

Tuition:  $985 – A deposit of $185 must be paid in order to register and reserve a seat for a program*. The balance of $800 is due by the first day of class. After the deposit has been paid, remaining balance can be paid by logging into myEMTUtah and accessing the Payment Portal. Students can make as many payments of any size as often as they’d like as long as the full balance is paid by the first day of class.
*Our classes often fill quickly so timely registration is important. Students who do not register in time to secure a seat will be placed on a waiting list. If you are on a wait list, please arrive for orientation as you may be able to get into the class if others do not show up. Please arrive at least five minutes early.


  • REQUIRED: A blood pressure cuff and stethoscope. You can purchase these yourself, borrow a set, or purchase a set from EMT Utah for $40 (only available as a set, not for individual purchase).
  • REQUIRED: Students must acquire the exact textbook we use in class with an unused access code and have it by the first day. Students may purchase the textbook from EMT Utah for $100 or elsewhere. Again, it must be the exact same book (ISBN: 9781284080179) and it must have an unused access code.
