What are the fees associated with becoming an EMT?
LiveScan Providers will charge a fee for the electronic fingerprinting. Generally, law enforcement agencies are less expensive than private providers but may have limited hours, etc.
CEU providers will charge a fee for the Orange County Expanded Scope Accreditation course.
CA EMT Certification Card, State Initial Certification $75.00 (One Time) plus = $35.00 Orange County Fee
CA EMT State Recertification Fee $37.00 plus Orange County Fee $35
OCEMS EMT Accreditation Card $40.00 – 1 year
So, for example, if you apply online as a new EMT graduate and also wish to have Orange County Accreditation, you will be charged a $75 state fee, $35 Orange County Fee and $40 for the one-year Accreditation card for a total of $150.
If you are an out-of-county CA EMT who just needs an Orange County Accreditation Card, you will be charged $40 for one year. The Orange County Accreditation Card expiration will expire when the California State Cards expires. We don’t prorate fees, Example: If you apply for an Accreditation card and pay the $40 fee in July 2013 and your State EMT card expires in November 2013 you will have to re-apply for the Accreditation card and pay the accreditation fee again.
