California 14-Day EMT Boot Camp*

Fremont EMT Training 2

Taught by seasoned EMS professionals, our California-based program will prepare you for real-world challenges using current technology and techniques. This preparation includes hands-on training and clinical externships with local ambulance providers, allowing you to gain field experience before achieving certification.

At Unitek EMT Fremont, students respond to intense trauma scenarios, MCI drills, and an active shooter drill. These exercises help prepare students for large incidents and give them a chance to experience high levels of stress in a place where they can be taught healthy ways to respond. For many students, this pushes them outside of their comfort zone and builds confidence in their skills.

+ Online Component: The online portion must be completed prior to graduation and includes approximately 50+ hours of didactic coursework, with 24 of those hours being incident management related material.

+ 14-Day Boot Camp: Our workshop-style classes feature practical training, subject mastery, and psychomotor skills. In addition, all California Unitek students will attend a clinical externship on an ambulance.

+ Enrollment Requirements Include:

  • Current American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider Certification (AHA BLS CPR) – Available at Unitek or at an AHA CPR training center near you.

To assist our graduates and make them more marketable, Unitek offers skills training that meets the requirements of numerous EMS and public safety agencies. We currently provide the following…

+ Emergency Medical Technician Certification: Once they have successfully completed the program, each graduate will receive a certificate of completion. This certificate ensures that they are eligible to take the NREMT exam, which is necessary to obtain national certification in the U.S.

+ Advanced Level Skills:

  • Glucometer. The glucometer is used by EMTs to measure a patient’s blood sugar level. Learning this skill enables students to understand glucometer basics and monitor a patient’s glucose levels.
  • I.V. Maintenance. Students will learn the I.V. basics, including the identification of medications used in I.V. therapy and monitoring the I.V. line. NOTE: this is not for initiating I.V.’s, it is to learn how to take care of a patient who already has one.
  • Advanced Airway Management. This is a lifesaving procedure that helps unconscious patients maintain a secure airway. Students learn about endotracheal intubation, dual lumen airway devices, and other ways to help a patient breathe.
  • ALS – BLS Skills. For students who want to become advanced level clinicians or work on a 911 ambulance, this training will show them how to work with and assist paramedics.
