Mission Statement:

The goal of our program here is to provide affordable training to enthusiastic individuals who are interested in working in the field of Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Our program focuses on entry-level training for those with or without any emergency medical background.  This course is designed to train individuals who wish to become an EMT.  The purpose of this course is to prepare the student to meet industry standards, become an EMT, and then begin working in the field as an EMT.  Upon successfully completing this program, the student will have a basic understanding in the field of Emergency Medicine as it pertains to a certified EMT.

The program consists of a total of 160 hours, which includes classroom instruction and hands-on training, taught by a state-certified EMT.  During that time, the student will receive classroom instruction via lectures, tests, videos, handouts, and homework assignments.  The student will also receive hands-on training on the individual skills required by the NREMT and county standards, taught by a certified EMT or higher, including any supplies needed required for the practical training.

At the end of their training, students will be given a final exam and to successfully complete the course will need a passing score of at least 80%.  Before being sent to training on an ambulance or in an emergency room, the student will be able to properly indentify emergency situations and respond appropriately.  Following their training, the student will be expected to safely perform skills per industry standards (National Registry).

Upon completion of the program, the student will receive a certificate of completion.  Completion of the course will make the student eligible to sit for the national registry exam.  CPR and More Training Program sufficiently supports the instructional needs of the student in order to pass the course, fulfills all current state requirements to become licensed as an EMT, and the student will be eligible to sit for the national registry exam for Emergency Medical Technician.

  5. Successfully pass the English proficiency entrance exam with an 80%.
  6. Please note that you may or may not be asked whether or not you have had any criminal or drug convictions. Conviction of a crime does not automatically mean that a student is ineligible for the course.

Requirements for Licensure:

In order to be certified as an EMT, you will be required by your local EMS Agency to undergo a background investigation, successfully complete a certified EMT training course, and take the National Registry of EMTs NREMT-B computer adaptive test, along with meeting the other application stipulations as set forth for California.  Successfully completing the CPR and More Training Program’s EMT Course qualifies you to take the National Registry certifying exam for EMTs.  If you pass the exam, you are then eligible for state and national certification.

The San Bernardino County EMT certification requirements:  Locally, the certifying process for EMTs in the State of California is completed through the Inland County Emergency Medical Services Agency.  Fee information and applications for certification in San Bernardino County will be distributed in class and are available for download online at www.iceme.com.

Certification and Recertification:

Certification as an EMT is valid for two years throughout the State of California.  Each certification card will indicate an expiration date.  It is the responsibility of the “practicing” EMT recertify before this two-year period has ended.  In order to recertify, students must successfully complete a prescribed refresher course or obtain 24 hours of approved continuing education units (CEUs) for the EMT.  In addition to completing a refresher course every two years or meeting the CEU requirements, EMTs must take the standardized State of California skills exam every two years.

Should the EMT fail to recertify before the expiration date, a two-year grace period is extended for recertification, with additional requirements based upon the length of the elapsed time.  During this two-year period, an EMT may NOT work as an EMT until the recertification process is completed.  Should the two years lapse without successful recertification, the EMT must take the entire primary training program again.

Any questions regarding certification and background checks in San Bernardino County should be directed to ICEMA.

Background Checks:

While it is not required for completing the EMT course or passing the NREMT-B exam, the local certifying agency for EMTs and most employers hiring EMTs will require a background investigation to determine if an applicant has a criminal history.  In addition to background checks, employers generally seek applicants that successfully complete a DOT physical to be an ambulance driver, have a clean drug test before being hired, and a good driving record.

In California, the background investigation often consists of an electronic fingerprint database search (Live Scan).  Conviction of a crime does not automatically mean that a student is ineligible for certification.  Typically, any felony conviction within the last seven years or any conviction for driving under the influence (DUI) may potentially disqualify an applicant from certification and/or employment.  Failure to disclose the required information may result in refusal of certification due to falsification.  Questions related to this process should be directed to ICEMA.

Emergency Medical Technician Examinations:

There is currently one exam available for certification:  The National Registry Exam which can be located at www.nremt.org/nremt/about/reg_basic_history.asp.  The cost of the test is $70.00 and will be paid by the student.  For any questions that cannot be answered by viewing their website, they can be reached at (614) 888-4484.

Attendance Policy:

All students must meet the minimum number of hours based on state protocols.  If any student fails to meet the minimum, they will be put into the next class at no cost to them.  A refund will not be issued.  Due to the speed at which the class progresses and the tests that must be passed, it is advised that students not miss days.  One missed test can be made up.  Any other missed tests and the student takes a zero for those tests.  A student may not miss the final exam.

It is important for the student to arrive to class on time and ready for instruction. Tardiness is disruptive to the other students as well as the instructor and will not be tolerated. Arriving to class later than ten minutes is considered tardy. The first offense will be a verbal warning. The second offense will result in a writing warning with/without suspension. The third offense will result in an automatic suspension. A fourth offense will lead to a possible termination of their program. In addition, students will be expected to come to class as scheduled unless there is a valid excuse (death in family, sickness, family emergency).  Any disciplinary action will be at the discretion of the school.

Probation, Drop Out, Re-admittance, Leave of Absence and/or Suspension:

Students may be placed on suspension or dropped from the program as appropriate for any of the following reasons:

  1. Nonpayment of services, as provided by law.
  2. Nonattendance, excessive tardiness, excessive absences. All students are required to attend the required to attend the required number of hours for the course they are attending.  Excessive absences is defined as missing more than two days of class.  If a student misses more than two classes, they will be removed from the program and start the program over with the next class.  Excessive tardiness is defined as missing more than five hours due to tardiness or leaving early from class without prior arrangements to make up the time.
  3. Unacceptable behavior which endangers others (students, patients, clinical staff, school instructors) will result in the student being dropped if not corrected (based on severity, a first offense may result in removal or being dropped from the program).
  4. Cheating: If a student is caught cheating, lying, providing falsified information, or providing care that is outside their scope of practice, they will be removed from class and not issued a refund.  They will not be allowed to take any other course with CPR and More Training Program.
  5. Academic Standards: If a student fails to pass their required tests, then they will be removed from the course.  They will be allowed to join the next class for a fee of $500.

The student may be given probation for a period of time following disciplinary action for a period as determined by the director here at CPR and More Training Program.  During that time, any further inappropriate action by the student can be cause for dismissal from the program, as determined by the director.  If the student is suspended, the student will not be permitted to continue the program until the situation is corrected.  CPR and More Training Program will review each situation on a case-by-case basis.

Re-admittance is handled on a case-by-case situation, dependent upon the reason for leaving.  The discretion upon re-admittance will be determined by the director of CPR and More Training Program on a case-by-case basis.

In cases where a student requests a leave of absence, a student may request, in writing, a leave of absence, which should include the date the student anticipates the leave to begin and end.  The student will be considered withdrawn from the program if they do not return on the scheduled day from their leave of absence.   The student upon their return will be placed in the next class based on the leave needed.

Academic Standards:

The program is four weeks long.  The student will be given a series of tests (excluding the final test).  An 80% score is considered passing for each test.  Each test will be reviewed after scoring the results with the class and feedback will be given regarding wrongly answered questions.  Students are advised to study at least two to six hours per subject, and they are expected to maintain an 80% average.  Any student who does not achieve an 80% will be referred to the program director for academic review.  At that time, an attempt to ascertain the cause of the poor scores will ensue.  Afterwards, a plan will be drawn up with the director and the student in ways to improve their scores.  If the student continues to fall below an 80% average without showing any noticeable improvement, they could be subject to suspension and/or dismissal from the program, at the director’s discretion.

The final test will have 200 questions and in order for the student to pass, you must answer 160 questions (80%) correctly.  If the student fails the final exam, they must wait at least two days before they may retake the final exam.  If the student fails the final exam a second time, they will be given the option to reenter the program after paying $500 to retake the course.  If the student after retaking the course again fails the final test along with the retake final exam will no longer be allowed to take the final exam again nor will they be allowed to reenter the program.
