Clinical Costs

TO BE DISCUSSED THE FIRST DAY/NIGHT OF CLASS

Requirements for clinical participation are set in conjunction with our clinical partners. In order to participate in the field internship required to complete the course, you should expect to incur costs for the following:

Clinical Uniform Shirt ($15 in CFCC Bookstore – we recommend 2 shirts)

Clinical Uniform Pants ($25-$50 depending on student choices)

Clinical Uniform Boots ($25-$50 depending on student choices)

Flu Shot

TB PPD Test ($35 Average Cost)

Hepatitis B Vaccination ($100 Average cost per injection for those who need full series)

Proof of childhood immunizations to include 2 MMR, 2 Varicella or proof of Chicken Pox, Tetanus (10 year)

Comprehensive Background Check/9-panel Drug Screen ($90 mandatory through a third-party ArcPoint)

This is required by the EMS providers and not by CFCC. This does not hinder student from attending the course. However, if a student is denied access to ride due to findings, the student will not be able to successfully complete the course.

Clinical requirements are those of our EMS Providers with which you will attend 4 – 12 hour field internships.
