Accelerated EMT
Training in the
Phoenix Area

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. It is their responsibility to provide efficient, quality medical care and transport patients to the hospital. With our hands-on training, you can join this group of dedicated healthcare providers and make a significant difference in people’s lives.

Additional Training

To make our graduates more marketable, Unitek offers multiple in demand skills training that meets 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 earns a certificate of completion, making them eligible to take the NREMT exam to obtain certification.

Advanced Level Skills

Glucometer.
The glucometer is used by EMTs to measure a patient’s blood sugar level. This skill enables students to learn and understand glucometer basics as well as monitor a patients’ glucose levels.

I.V. Maintenance.
Occasionally, patients need to be transferred from one facility to another with an I.V. already established. Through our training students will learn I.V. basics.  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. Students will receive training on insertion of a supraglottic airway, which can be used when intubation has failed or when airway management is needed for trapped patients.

ALS – BLS Skills.

For students who want to become advanced level clinicians or work on a 911 ambulance, this training prepares EMT students to work with and assist a Paramedic. Designed by a paramedic; our course will teach you how to assist in setting up for procedures, for advanced airway, maintaining a sterile field, attaching leads for an electrocardiogram (EKG), setting up an automatic chest compression device and much more. When seconds count, be the one everyone can count on.

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
  • Failed Psychomotor NREMT skills examination
  • Missed more than 12 hours
