Unitek EMT 14-Day
Boot Camp

Get mission-ready and certified fast!

If caring for sick and injured people in emergency situations sounds rewarding, a career as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) could be for you.  EMTs work in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and are a vital link in the chain of healthcare.  EMTs are first responders to medical incidents and accident scenarios where they provide care and facilitate transportation to more advanced medical facilities.

Unitek EMT Program

Get certified in less time and gain real hands-on experience with the Unitek EMT program. Taught by veteran EMS professionals, our program prepares you for real-life challenges using current technology and techniques. This includes realistic emergency simulations and local ambulance clinical hours, allowing you to experience what it means to be an EMT before achieving certification. Unitek also provides testing assistance for those who need a little extra help.

Online Portion: Prior to participating in the 14-day on-campus Boot Camp, students must complete 45+ hours of online prerequisite study. This includes approximately 21 hours of online didactic EMT-related course material and approximately 24 hours of online didactic incident management-related course material.

14-Day Boot Camp: Taught by experienced EMS professionals with current expertise, our workshop-style classes include real-world implementations, hands-on training, and instruction to ensure you master the knowledge and skills you need to save lives. All students will also have clinicals on an ambulance or in an Emergency Room setting to further prepare them for success.

To make our graduates more marketable, Unitek offers multiple certifications that meet the requirements of various EMS and public safety agencies. We currently offer the following certifications:

Emergency Medical Technician Certification

Program Completion Certificate
After successful completion of the EMT Program, each student receives a certificate of completion, which makes them eligible to take the NREMT exam to obtain licensure.

Advanced Level Skills Assist

The glucometer is used by EMTs to measure a patient’s blood sugar level. The EMTs draw a small blood sample from a patient and read the blood sugar levels via a glucometer. This skill enables students to learn and understand glucometer basics.

I.V. Maintenance.
From time to time, patients need to be transferred from one facility to another with an I.V. already established. This enables students to learn and understand I.V. basics. 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.
This is a lifesaving procedure that helps unconscious patients breathe. This enables students to learn how to perform endotracheal intubation (inserting a breathing tube) as well as being trained on insertion of a supraglottic airway, which can be used in situations when intubation has failed or when airway management is needed for trapped patients.

Additional Information

Non-California Students

Non-California students: Currently, all of our EMT Boot Camps* are held in Northern California. Students from all over the United States can attend the Boot Camps* (some restrictions apply).

Unitek EMT is applying for permission to teach EMT Boot Camps* in all major U.S. states. If you are unable to take advantage of the California program, but are interested in attending our Boot Camp* in your state, please fill out the information form. Our Educational Advisors will give you dates and location information once we have completed our EMS approval process.

NREMT Passing Assistance

If you pass the EMT Program with an 80% or higher, but fail to pass the cognitive NREMT exam, Unitek EMT gives you an option to retake the 14-Day Boot Camp* within 18 months, for no additional charge. Unitek EMT will issue a voucher for the NREMT exam and, if needed, a second voucher for the second attempt.

(Note: The tuition cost will be waived for the program retake. Charges associated with airfare, hotel and meals are not covered by Unitek EMT.)

The following additional requirements apply to the cognitive NREMT Exam retake offer:

Student MUST have successfully completed the entire Unitek EMT Program and associated materials prior to the scheduled date of the cognitive NREMT exam and achieved a minimum score of 80% cumulative grade average in the EMT program.

The first cognitive NREMT exam attempt must be within 30 days of completion of the program. The second attempt (if needed) must be within 90 days from the result of the first attempt. The retake is ONLY valid for students that attempted (and did not pass) the cognitive NREMT exam on the first attempt and within the required time frame. If, for any reason, the student did not make the first attempt within the required time, the retake offer is considered null and void.

Students understand that they must take the NREMT exam within two years of the completion of the program or they will not be able to apply for the NREMT Certification. Psychomotor (Practical skill) examination results are valid for one year from the date of the examination. National EMT certification requires successful completion of both a cognitive and psychomotor exam. Passed portions of the exam (both cognitive and psychomotor) remain valid for a 12-month period. Practical skill examination results are valid for one year from the date of the exam.

To attend a future Boot Camp* for free, students must bring their textbooks and uniform.

The following will void your NREMT Exam Retake option:

  • Any violations of classroom policy
  • Not successfully completing the didactic portion of the course
  • Failed Psychomotor NREMT skills examination
  • Missed more than 12 hours
