  1. Thank you for interest in our program.

    To become an EMT, you only need two classes. They are both regular credit classes at Palomar College. Therefore, you do not need a special or separate application for these classes.

    The first class is EME 100 (First Responder). This course costs around $300.00 including books, parking and other fees.

    After you pass that class with a grade of “B” or higher, you may take the EME 106 and 106L classes (EMT class.) We offer these classes every semester including summer. The cost of these courses totals about $550.00 including books, parking and other fees.

    To become a Paramedic…
