The skills testing session is to verify proficiency of the EMT renewing or reinstating his/her certification or for the EMT student who needs the skills testing for NREMT. These skills meet all NREMT and California requirements for skills testing and are valid for 2 years from the date of completion.
Students who fail Skills Testing will need to re-enroll and retake the Skills Testing at a later date. Students who fail Skills Testing can retake the testing at a reduced re-enrollment price.
Because we know EMT Skills Testing is not easy, we also offer an Skills Test Practice the morning before EMT Skills Testing, as well as Skills Test Training a week before the testing, for those who need more preparation to be ready to test.
We also offer Package Deals that include Practice Testing and EMT Skills Test Training.
There is no EMS-CE awarded for Skills Testing.

- For dates/times when an EMT Instructor is NOT already on duty, rates vary on circumtances, as detailed below:
- Option 1 - One EMT Instructor is priced at $100 for up to 2 hours and $50 per hour above 2 hours, billable in one hour increments. Please know certain Skills cannot be tested, such as C-spine, as at least 2 EMTs are required to test for this Skill. Also note, same-day retests are not allowed with this option, as a second EMT Instructor must conduct a same-day retest when a student fails a Skill.
- Option 2 - Two EMT Instructors are priced at $200 for up to 2 hours and $80 per hour above 2 hours, billable in one hour increments. All Skills can be tested with this option and same-day retests are also allowed.

Occasionally, there are not enough students to hold a testing, practice, or training session. This is because a minimum number of students are required for team skills activities. If a class must be cancelled because this minimum number is not reached, students can opt for a full refund or move their session to a future date. Should the class need to be cancelled, the decision to do so will be made by Safety Unlimited at least one week prior to the session date.
If a student is unable to attend a class or testing session for which they have registered, he/she must contact Safety Unlimited in advance to either transfer or cancel the registration.
Safety Unlimited will offer a full refund if the student cancels 15 or more calendar days before the start of the class.
Cancellations received 14 calendar days or less before the start of the class will be charged a fee of 20% of the tuition.
