A community of learning

As an EMT, we realize you could encounter life-or-death scenarios from the first day on the job, so we prepare you for that reality from your first day in our classroom. Instructors with an average of 15 years of field-based knowledge and experience will guide you through the ins and outs of emergency medical response. A supportive network of your peers enhances coursework and hands-on learning.

Training that transfers to your career

Our EMT training school in California can help you make vital decisions and take appropriate action during a medical emergency.

Your time at IOT can also equip you to take your National Registry Emergency Medical Technician exam – which IOT covers, so you can better focus on your education goals.
