EMT Registration Information Spring 2019:

The next EMT classes will be offered in the spring semester (January) with registration starting on November 19.

There will be a mandatory information session for incoming students on November 30 and December 1 at the Dale Mabry Campus Student Services Auditorium starting at 9:00 AM. Students only need to attend one session. There will also be a summer session following the spring semester that begins in May.

The HCC EMT Program is a one semester, 12 credit program that is offered every semester at the Dale Mabry, Plant City and South Shore Campuses.  There are three classes required: EMT Lecture (EMS 1119) EMT Practicum (EMS 1119L) and EMT Clinical (EMS 1431). Please note that classes typically fill up fast.

Classes are offered both in the day and evening. The evening hours are 5:00 PM to 8:30 PM  Depending on how students arrange their class schedule, students can be on campus 2 or 4 days /evenings a week.  Specific course days and times can be found by visiting our website and  using the “Search for Course Sections” link at the top of the page once registration has begun.  You must be an HCC student to begin the registration process.  If you have never attended HCC please  fill out the “New Student Application” found on the HCC website.  Allow at least 2 days for processing.

While our EMT program is open enrollment, students must still meet certain eligibility requirements.  After submitting the HCC application, students should schedule to meet with one of our Health Sciences Advisors below.  Classes that are full cannot be overridden.

All Health Sciences students are required to submit to a criminal background check, random drug test, physical exam and provide documentation of up-to-date immunizations.  Specific information for these additional requirements will be provided during information sessions and are at the student's expense. The total cost of the program with in-state tuition is approximately $1600. Out of state tuition is significantly higher.
