Need Help Paying for Tuition?

School of EMS takes pride in working with individuals, EMS agencies, Fire Departments and other industry employers to create payment models that are fair and reasonable.  We have several options available to meet your needs.

Registered Apprenticeship Program

The Paramedic Apprenticeship Program is a combination of PAID On-the-Job Training (OJT), online or classroom education, and clinical training. Tuition costs are supported by financial aid. Wages are paid for the OJT and clinical hours making this an “Earn as you Learn” program. Wages increase throughout the program as skills are obtained.

The School of EMS sets up work/study employment arrangements with EMS employers for students in mutually agreed upon locations. These employers have typically provide regular employment upon completion of the program. Students already working with an EMS company, fire department or hospital may be able to complete their work/study with their current employer. 

Apprentices may receive financial aid that is not available to non-apprenticeship students.

The School of EMS’ Paramedic Registered Apprenticeship Program offers tuition assistance to include:

  • Everyone (based upon eligibility)
