Recently our council has raised our EMT class fee to $1700. Why? The answer to making it simpler for the student. KCEMS now covers the second portion of the CPR card, reducing the cost of the CPR card for the student. The student will receive their CPR card, during the course of the class. Upon graduation, the next step for students is to take the National Registry EMT exam. KCEMS is including the class of the exam in our tuition. One less headache for students, so they can focus on what is important, the exam.
