Fire Science Online Ranks Programs
There are over 1,100 colleges in the U.S. that offer emergency medical technician programs, with tuition ranging from exorbitant to relatively inexpensive. Of those, only schools that met very specific criteria were included on the list:
• Colleges with average annual tuition below $10,000 only, according to IPEDS
• Must have at least 10,000 active students enrolled
• Average annual salary (for EMTs in each school's respective state) greater than $30,000
• Fully-accredited schools only
• Public and Private schools included
• U.S. colleges only
“EMT's stand between victims and disaster, often risking their own safety to do so,” said Matt Davis, Managing Director of Fire Science Online. “They fill a dangerous but crucial role in our lives, and they deserve to be rewarded for it. We hope that this list will help future EMTs find programs that will pay off over the long-term.”
