Health:

All students accepted in the EMT program will be required to submit a completed physical exam form prior to entrance into a clinical agency. (Physical Exam forms will be available only to those students accepted).

Insurance:

All accepted students are required to purchase and are covered by the Allied Health Liability Insurance and also the Education/Training Student Accident Insurance through EFSC. The cost of this insurance coverage is included in the program's course fees.

Background Check/Drug Screen:

All accepted students must have completed a criminal background check and any required screening. This is handled for the EMT program by the Brevard Police Testing and Selection Center. The acceptance letter will explain the process. Failure to complete these steps will result in forfeiture of your spot in the class. Per state regulations, if you have been convicted of a felony you may not be eligible for state certification. To be sure, contact the state office of EMS at 1-850-245-4440.
