EMT Training Application

Please have your application submitted to the CCJDA office by no later than noon on Thursday November, 10th.


In order to receive an EMT Course Completion Certificate:
you must have obtained a score of 70% or above on your final examination, successfully pass all skills examinations and have a class overall percentage of 70% and pass a proctored online test at FISDAP with a score of 70% or better (on one of two attempts). In addition you must successfully complete 20 hours of hospital clinical visits and 30 hours of ambulance ride along or combination. Evaluations must be acceptable based on rubric and preceptor narrative criteria. Any student who is sent home or turned away for any reason, including being late (other than hospital JC audits, internal disaster, or ride-along requirement change by agency) and/or is evaluated by preceptor personnel to lack
emotional maturity is deemed to have failed the evaluation process for successful completion. Students successful in all categories of the program are eligible to sit for the National Registry EMT examination. Upon successful completion of the NREMT you are then able to obtain your North Dakota State EMS Authority EMT certification card/license.

Funding Opportunity

To insure training that the community will benefit and we will increase the number of volunteers available to take call we will have an application process in place. Individuals can apply to have their training paid for. The applications will be scored on factors such as if the individual is willing to take call, how many hours of call they are willing to take, what days they are available to take call, and if they plan to live in Cavalier County following the completion of the course. The payment for the class will be structured as a 0% interest, forgivable loan. Students will sign a loan contract for the amount of the class. If the complete the class and pass the test the loan payments will be deferred for one year. The class fee included the testing fee. If they do not complete the class they will be required to pay back the loan.

After the one year period if the individual has taken at least 576 hours of call over the course of a year, the loan will be forgiven and the individual will have received the training for free. However, if the individual has not taken enough call loan payments will begin. If they are close to the 576 we could give the a little bit of time to reach that number, however we prefer they get as close to that number as possible by June 30, 2018 to have their loan forgiven. 576 hours may sound like a lot but it is only 48 hours, or 2 days per month. We will be using the yearly amount as we understand some months may be busier than others. The 576 hour limit is also low enough that high school students who plan to head to college in the next year may be able to take advantage of the training as well. The 576 hours could be met by taking one weekend a month of call over the course of the year. If they take some call the summer before they leave the number of weekend required will be reduced even further.
