EMT Initial Training

Course Description:

Less Stress Instructional Services runs EMT certification programs in various northern and central NJ locations. Programs typically run for 1-3 months depending on the schedule, and contain instruction necessary to prepare a student to function as an Emergency Medical Technician. After successful completion of this 190-hour program, the student is eligible to sit for the NJ EMT examination with the Department of Health. This program is professional technical training. Students will be expected to complete reading and homework assignments, attend classes, and complete all program objectives to sit for the state EMT certification exam. Some important facts about EMT training:

Our classes routinely have waiting lists - it's incredibly important that you not register for the program unless you plan on being there.

EMT training requires 190 hours of classroom time and hospital observation time. There are no 'sick days' or 'excused absences' in a NJ-State approved program. Missed sessions must be made up by attending other sessions - often at other training centers and at inconvenient times. Do not miss sessions needlessly. Timeliness is extremely important to this program, as there is a lot of material to cover in a limited amount of time. If you are not able to be at the course site by the course times listed below, consider registering for another program.

Course Length: 190 hours

Intended Audience: Those wishing to be certified as Emergency Medical Technicians such as aspiring EMS workers, Rescue Squad Volunteers, fire-fighters, police officers, or corporate/industrial safety workers.

COST OF TRAINING - Manuals and online module access cost $295. Students must utilize our program materials and not permitted to substitute alternate materials or materials sourced elsewhere. All students, including EMT Training Fund students, must purchase these materials at time of registration.

Tuition cost is $1500 and can be paid for utilizing EMT Training Fund. The scanned EMT Training Fund form must be submitted at time of registration. Students should utilize discount code TFF to received the $1500 rebate on registration. Registrations utilizing the discount code but not submitting a Training Fund form will be deleted.

In summary, at registration the following payment is required:
- General Student: $1795
- Eligible Volunteer Student: $295 plus EMT Training Fund form


  • Age 16 years or older
  • Current Professional Level CPR/BLS card
  • Ability to read/write English to a 10th grade level

Please note - Due to the nature of medical terminology and the complex concepts associated with emergency care, we have found that students are not successful unless they have a 10th grade ability to read/write/speak English. Of particular concern are individuals for whom English is a second language. Please note that it is your responsibility to self-assess your English skills. We do not refund tuition past the first day of the course, so please consider this carefully before registering for EMT class.
