If you’ve been searching for EMT schools in Arizona, we have some great news for you—Unitek EMT has now expanded to the city of Chandler! Located southeast of Phoenix, Arizona, Chandler is a city dotted with numerous parks, museums, hotels, and restaurants. With varied settings amid gorgeous desert sunsets, Chandler offers a range of attractions to residents and visitors alike.
Although Unitek EMT is based in Northern California, we seek to provide Arizona residents with an alternative route for their EMT educational needs. Aspiring emergency medical technicians will now have the opportunity to attend Unitek’s Chandler facility and enroll in our accelerated EMT program.
Today, we’d like to tell you a little more about our Arizona location as well as the city of Chandler. Go on a quick virtual tour with us!
About Unitek’s Chandler Facility
Picture a flat, open area filled with stately office buildings. The natural beauty of the desert shines through the pink-beige hues of the buildings and the windows that cast a teal glow in direct sunlight. A sea of cacti and native rocks compliment the large, sprawling space, and slender palm trees add dimension to the landscape.
Through a set of glass doors at 585 North Juniper Drive, you’ll find glimmering marble floors and other stylistic touches. Once you locate our suite within the building, you’ll be buzzed inside and greeted by a member of our friendly staff. In time, you’ll see various posters bearing Unitek’s name. You’ll also come across a lavish kitchen with a fridge and a vending machine. This open space not only acts as a lounge for students, but it’s also how we provide complimentary lunches and dinners.
Within our EMT classroom, you’ll find desks, a projector, and a partition in the middle of the room. Gurneys and stocked EMS bags lie on the other side of the partition. Additionally, in a room behind this classroom, students utilize three skills laboratories: the medical lab, the trauma lab, and the equipment lab.
The medical and trauma areas allow students to engage in simulation training while the third area houses larger medical equipment. Each class is split into three squads, allowing them to rotate and partake in these activities at different times. At Unitek EMT, we’re firm believers in workshop-style classes.
It should be noted that a fabulous hotel is located within a mile of our Chandler facility. Students can rent a room at the Staybridge Suites while they attend our 140-hour program. At Staybridge Suites, some rooms provide guests with a private kitchen, a living room, and a large bath tub. Hotel highlights include a complimentary breakfast buffet and an on-site fitness center!
