Equipment required for the course of study such as stethoscopes, blood pressure cuffs, splinting devices and spinal boards will be provided by the school at no cost to the student. All equipment is property of the school and should never be taken off campus. Course will also provide access to multiple ambulance companies in order to obtain the required clinical hours for the course.

The required text, "AAOS Emergency Care and Transportation of the Sick and Injured 12th Edition", by Jones & Bartlett, will be provided by the institute to students on the first day of class. Access to the necessary documents, "Jones & Bartlett Learning Navigate Online-Essentials" and "The Los Angeles County Skills Training Documents" will also be provided.

Students will complete 21 in-person didactic and skills classes, as well as 4 mandatory in-person skills sessions and 24 clinical hours. We ask that due to this course being primarily in-person, to dress in appropriate clothing that allows you to perform the movements required for the skill days. Skills Review days requires appropriate shoes (no Sandals, open toes, or loose fitting shoes) and a watch with the ability to count seconds.

Students will need to complete 20 hours of online CIEMT courses and FEMA ICS 100 and 700.

The full course cost is required to be paid in to CIEMT in full no later than the beginning of the first day of course instruction. The minimum required deposit must also be paid 10 working days prior to the start date of the EMT-B course to confirm your spot in the class. If we do not receive this payment, you will be automatically removed from registration.

Right after going over the rules and enrollment agreement on the start date of each course, CIEMT runs an AHA CPR/AED course. If you’re enrolled in the Long Beach/Hawthorne EMT course, you’re automatically enrolled in the CPR training. If you do not have a current CPR card from previous training, you will pay an extra $40 as a CIEMT student (discounted from the non-student rate of $65-$100), and a card will be issued to you upon successful completion of the training. If you have an acceptable CPR card (AHA Healthcare Provider or Red Cross Professional Rescuer. Please bring a copy for your file.), you will still undergo the CPR training with the other students on the first day, but you do not have to pay for it and will not be issued a new card from us.

Course FAQs

This means that regular registration for that start date is full. You cannot register online for a course that is full. You can, however, be entered into the waitlist. To be put on the wait list you must use the JOIN WAITLIST link and have an account with CIEMT. Here’s the way the waitlist works: If a class has not started and you receive a waitlist invite that means a spot has opened up, (IN THAT CLASS ONLY), the student will be sent an invitation link, as soon as you click on the link the class will automatically will be added to the cart (DO NOT DELETE THE CLASS FROM YOUR CART), the student has 4 hours of when the email invite was sent to pay the tuition in full, before the invite link is REVOKED and given to the next person in the waitlist.

You may do all 40 hours (CE and Skills Testing) at our Long Beach Campus. That’s 40 hours of CE’s in total. Please remember 20 hours out of the 40 hours must be in specific subjects (Those specific subjects can be found on the NREMT website). You may also take a 24 hours Refresher course and do the additional hours required at the Long Beach campus with CE classes.

In California, for most positions, you are not required to renew your NREMT card. (If you want to, you can. This will require twice as many CE hours, which will increase the cost greatly). You must renew your state certification that you applied for through your local county EMS agency. State certifications are renewed every two years and require 24 hours of CE (continuing education), a valid CPR card, and a skills validation exam. You may do that by coming to any 3 of our regular lecture classes (7 hours each, the scheduled dates for each year are available for registration and payment on our website and are $40 for each 7 hour class). For renewal you must also attend Skills Validation Testing session that we give at the end of each month (dates, registration and payment are on our website and are $95 which includes 6 hours of CE if you pass all skills). If your certification is expired, you cannot work as an EMT, but you can still renew by doing the following:

Up to 6 months expired:
24hrs CE, a skills validation and a valid CPR card (same requirements as a timely renewal) 

6mo-12mo expired:
36hrs CE, the skills validation and a valid CPR card

12mo- to forever expired:
48hrs CE, a skills validation, current CPR card and retake the NREMT

You will choose from several ambulance companies that CIEMT has contracted with to perform your ride-along. These are scheduled outside of class time, at the discretion of the ambulance company and you, with regard to availability. You must have them completed by the designated date for your course, which will be set by the CIEMT program director. If the clinical hours and contacts have not been completed by the designated date the student will not complete the course.

Clothes would be good. The only dress code for class is that flip flops, or short skirts, are not permitted on skills days. There is, however, a dress code for your clinical ride-along. The ambulance company that you choose will dictate exactly what you will need to wear. General dress code is: Dark blue or black paints, white button down shirt and black boots.

Almost right away after your course is over!!! If you wait over two weeks to take the exam your chances of passing are greatly diminished. It’s a computer-based exam that you will take at a Pearson View testing center. There are several in the L.A. County area. Make sure that you are registered and paid for the exam before the end of your course to ensure timely authorization from CIEMT to sit for the exam.

Once you successfully complete the program, you must take the State Certification exam (National Registry Exam). This is done at a separate testing facility. See the NREMT website, a link to it is on the bottom of our homepage. After passing the exam, you will take your NREMT card that they send you, your completion certificate from the EMT course, and your CPR card and make application to local EMS agency to get an EMT certification from the State. You will also have to complete the Live-Scan background check when you make application. Each county has and EMS agency, pick one. There is also a link to LA County’s EMS Agency’s website on the bottom of our homepage.

The short answer is no. This is a certification course and students are required to complete a specific amount of hours. All course material is vital to your training and no part of the course can be missed. However, students are given the opportunity to make-up ONE missed non-mandatory lecture class meeting. The hours and training must be made up at a rate of $40 / hour. Of the twenty-one days of instruction, six days are considered mandatory and are not eligible for make-up for any reason, those days being skills practical days and review days.

You may pay the registration fee via the CIEMT web site after you complete the registration form with a credit card, debit or ACH (electronic check). If you wish to pay your second balance via check, cash or money order. You may send the check or money order to our main campus office at 2669 Myrtle Ave. #201 Signal Hill, CA 90755, or pay via cash at the office. (Please note on the check or money order the course start date and the registered students full name). The full balance of the EMT Program must be paid by the start date for your course.

All EMT Basic Programs are 21 total days of instruction. The night courses are all four weeks. The morning courses meet three days a week and last for seven weeks. The Start and end dates for each program given is posted under the registration link for each specific EMT Program. The Online Hybrid EMT Basic Program runs 11 weeks and has 6 “on site” training days at our Hawthorne location.

The only prerequisite is an American Heart Association (AHA) or Red Cross BLS CPR certification. We offer the AHA BLS CPR training on the first day of the class in the course (if needed) after rules and regulations. You do not need to complete that training prior.

We do not offer any federal aid and because we don’t offer units towards a degree the GI bill at present cannot be used. However, we will accept payment from any organization that offers student scholarships, so long as the payment is made out to CIEMT in the exact tuition amount.

Bring your note-taking stuff, dress appropriately for the CPR training (considered a Skills day, see dress code question below) and bring the $40 cash if you need a CPR card to be issued to you from us. If you already have a CPR card, bring it with you so we can make sure it’s the proper level, and bring a copy to hand in for your file.

You will receive an e-mail confirmation at the time of registration, however, your spot in the class is not secured until a payment has been received. If you receive a receipt of payment from a Credit Card or Debit Card or ACH payment method, then your registration is confirmed. If you send a money order or personal check, as soon as we receive it you are confirmed in the course. Aside from the initial registration confirmation and course information packet, CIEMT does not send out any other emails or mailings regarding your enrollment. You will receive course documents and more information on the first day of class.

As stated in the CIEMT course catalog, you may pay in full at the time of registration or a minimum registration fee listed for the course prior to the start date of the course you are registered for to reserve your spot. The remainder is due by the start date of the course. If the deposit is not made before ten working days prior to the start date of the course, you will be removed from registration. See the CIEMT Course Catalog for current pricing.

* Cancellation and refund policy: STUDENT’S RIGHT TO CANCEL Students are required to submit a two-hundred-dollar ($250.00) registration fee as a condition of registration for the Initial Certification Program for EMT-Basic. Cancellation of attendance in this program will allow the student a full refund only if cancellation is made Ten (10) working days prior to the start date of the class in which the student has registered. If cancellation is made less than ten working days prior to the start date of the course, the registration fee is considered nonrefundable. Cancellation is defined as sending a date verifiable e-mail to the CIEMT course program directors e-mail address. If the provisions of cancellation described herein are not met the registration fee is considered non-refundable. (Matthew Goodman CIEMT Program Director, 562 989-1520, [email protected])


* Example: If a student withdraws from the CIEMT EMT course after attending 75 hours of program, the refund of tuition would be calculated as follows:

1. $1110.00 Course Fee - $2.50 STRF - $250.00 Registration Fee =$857.50

2. $857.50 divided by the number of hours in the program 146 Hrs = $5.87 an hourly charge for the program.

3. The amount owed by the student would be the hours in which the student attended the course 75 hours X the hourly charge $5.87 = $440.25 plus the registration fee of $250.00 equaling a student owed amount of $690.25

4. The amount in excess and refund to the student would be tuition amount $1110.00 – $690.25 the amount owed by the student, which would equal a refund amount paid to the student of $419.75.

If you have attended 60% of the program which calculates to Skills day 2 there is no refund.
