Start your healthcare career as an Emergency Medical Technician with our EMT program. The EMT is a front-line, entry-level healthcare provider. As an EMT, you may work in a variety of environments: transporting patients between facilities, responding to emergency calls, in a hospital emergency department, and elsewhere a first-response capability is required. EMT certification and work experience are required for those seeking Paramedic training, and many doctors, nurses, and other healthcare providers started their careers as EMTs.

We offer the EMT program on four schedules. All provide the same curriculum and expert UCLA faculty. These courses fill fast, so please register when the course date you prefer is available.

Online/Hybrid: Ten weekly live online sessions in the evening, self-paced interactive assignments, and eight on-site skills instruction days, 8am-6pm. $1495.

  • For the courses beginning May 25, you can choose from a schedule with skills taught on eight Sundays (between June 5 and August 7), or eight consecutive days from July 30 - August 6. You will be enrolled in whichever skills schedule you select when you register.

Accelerated: Three weeks, Monday-Friday, 8am-6pm, plus the following Monday for final exams and skills testing. $1195.

Weekend: Eight weekends, Saturday-Sunday, 8am-6pm. $1195.

Evenings: Eleven weeks, Tuesday/Wednesday/Thursday, 6pm-10pm. $1195.

All four EMT course schedules also require two 12-hour ambulance ride-along shifts, which you will schedule during your EMT course.

On successfully completing our EMT program, you will be eligible to take the national certifying exam (National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians – NREMT) and become licensed as an EMT in Los Angeles County.
