EMT Preparation

Available course dates

Course fee: $195 • Nonrefundable: $50
Additional materials cost: $50


This course covers (at the basic EMS provider level): Anatomy, Cardiology, Pulmonology, and Neurology, with an emphasis on Medical Terminology.

During this course, you will spend at least twice the time on these topics as in the EMT program. In addition, we will use an adaptive eText and live online class sessions to reinforce these topics. This course will also introduce you to the study strategies we find most successful for our UCLA EMT students.

This course starts with an online orientation and introductory session.  Students will then be expected to complete approximately 4 hours of reading. In addition, homework and quizzes will be assigned via the course website.  Four live online sessions, utilizing AdobeConnect, will be conducted in which highlights of the course material are discussed.

Successful course completion earns 16 hours of CEUs of instructor-led credit for currently certified EMRs, EMTs, AEMTs, and Paramedics.

Required Materials: Students must purchase the $50 EMT Preparation package from Jones & Bartlett Learning.
