Complio & Background Check
EMT students will use Complio to track compliance with vaccinations, health prerequisites, and background information. Complio requires a one-time cost of $18 for the vaccine tracker and $42 for a background check.
Background checks only report convictions, open cases, and adjudicated cases. Traffic offenses and moving violations including speeding, driving while under the influence, or reckless driving are not reported and thus do not impact the background check. If a case has been dismissed, it is not reported. If the background check contains a criminal conviction or other potentially disqualifying information, an individualized assessment will be conducted.
As per the California Code of Regulations Section 100214.3: Denial of Revocation of a Certificate, the following individuals are not able to be certified as an EMT and are ineligible for the EMT Course:
- Has committed any sexually related offense specified under Section 290 of the Penal Code.
- Has been convicted of murder, attempted murder, or murder for hire.
- Has been convicted of two (2) or more felonies.
Other offenses may limit or inhibit the ability to be certified as an EMT in the State of California. For additional information on EMT certification in the State of California, please reach out to your local EMS Agency.
Dress for ride-along shifts

When completing your ambulance ride along, you must wear a plain white collared shirt (e.g., a polo or dress shirt with no insignias), black or dark blue slacks/medic pants, and black/dark closed-toe shoes.
