Accelerated EMT
Training in Northern

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. They are first responders to medical incidents where they provide care and facilitate transportation to more advanced medical facilities.

California 14-Day EMT Boot Camp*

Get certified in less time and gain hands-on experience with Unitek’s 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 clinical externships with local ambulance providers, allowing you to experience what it means to be an EMT before achieving certification. Unitek instructors also provide testing assistance for those who need a little extra help.

Online Component: Unitek’s unique approach to EMT training contains an online component, one that must be completed prior to graduation. The online portion includes approximately 50+ hours of didactic EMT coursework, with 24 of those hours being incident management related course material.

14-Day Boot Camp: Taught by experienced EMS professionals, our workshop-style classes include real-world implementations, hands-on training, subject mastery, and the psychomotor skills you need to save lives. During the boot camp, all Unitek students will attend a clinical externship on an ambulance to further prepare them for success.

Enrollment Requirements Include:

  • Current American Heart Association Basic Life Support for Healthcare Provider Certification (AHA BLS CPR) – Available at Unitek or at an AHA CPR training center near you.

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 receives a certificate of completion, which makes them eligible to take the NREMT exam to obtain certification.

Advanced Level Skills

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 as well as monitor a patients’ glucose levels.

I.V. Maintenance.
From time to time, 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 understand and be able to identify the various medications used in I.V. therapy as well as how to trouble shoot and monitor 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. This enables students to 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 in situations when intubation has failed or when airway management is needed for trapped patients.

ALS – BLS Skills.

If you’re interested in becoming an advanced level clinician or if you want to someday work on a 911 ambulance, Unitek is the place for you. We offer a unique training that 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
  • Not successfully completing the didactic portion of the course
  • Failed Psychomotor NREMT skills examination
  • Missed more than 12 hours
