One of the Nation’s Finest EMT Training Programs Now Offered In Chandler, Arizona
Unitek EMT has expanded their popular Emergency Medical Technician training program into Chandler, Arizona. Based in California, Unitek seeks to provide Arizona residents with an accelerated and robust option for their EMT training. Currently, Unitek is accepting students for boot camps scheduled to start in October at their Chandler campus.
In Arizona, the Unitek EMT program features a 14-day boot camp with applied training, hands-on exercises, and clinical simulations. Students will receive efficient and comprehensive EMT training through this 140-hour program. The 10 hours of boot camp style instruction per day for 14 consecutive days is designed to simulate the intense pace of work that can be expected on the job as an EMT.
The program also includes NREMT passing assistance. The National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) administers the cognitive certification exam that graduates must take in order to become nationally certified EMTs. At a student’s request, Unitek will provide assistance in passing this milestone exam.
The Importance of Emergency Medical Technicians
“Due to the vital service that first responders provide, there is great demand for well-trained EMTs across the country,” said David Higley, Chief Marketing Officer at Unitek Learning, the parent company of Unitek EMT. “Our new Chandler campus will serve the entire Maricopa County area.” With almost 5 million people, Maricopa is the fourth most populous county in the U.S., and it was the fastest-growing county in 2017. Last year, the average salary* for EMTs and paramedics in Arizona was $38,330 according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, which makes Arizona one of the nation’s top ten highest-paying states for EMTs and paramedics.
To make their graduates more marketable, Unitek offers psychomotor skills training that meets the requirements of various EMS and public safety agencies. They currently provide successful graduates with a Program Completion Certificate. Through the Arizona EMT program, Unitek seeks to promote student excellence, strengthen support for workforce development, and help fill the need for EMS professionals in the United States.
“We are thrilled to announce this transformative expansion,” said David Higley. “It has been a year of growth and opportunity for Unitek EMT, and we look forward to extending our reach in Arizona. At Unitek, we are dedicated to educating the next generation of emergency medical technicians.”
