Emergency Medical Technician Certificate Program

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program is one semester and 10 credit hours in length, offered in the Fall and Spring semesters.

  • Basic Certificate: 10 credit hours

To be eligible to sit for the Arizona EMT exam, students must successfully complete the EMT Certificate Program with a “C” or better.

Upon successful completion of the program, students will receive a college completion certificate and the necessary paperwork required to apply for the Arizona EMT and National Registry certifications.
