EMT Basic Training in Arizona

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) are a vital link in the chain of healthcare. During an emergency, EMTs are dispatched to the scene by a 911 operator, and often work with police and fire department personnel. They are responsible for providing efficient, quality medical care and transporting patients to the hospital. EMTs engage in high-risk work, which means it is absolutely critical they receive proper training. With our hands-on EMT basic training program, you can join this group of dedicated healthcare providers and make a significant difference in people’s lives.

EMT Boot Camp Curriculum

Our EMT program is a 14-Day Boot Camp with hands-on exercises, active learning, and clinical simulations. Taught by seasoned EMS professionals, the EMT program includes approximately 10 hours of EMS instruction per day for 14 consecutive days. During the program, students participate in realistic emergency simulations to prepare them for success in the field.
