Clinical Costs
To be discussed on the first day/night of class!

Requirements for clinical participation are set in conjunction with our clinical partners. Clinical requirements are those of our EMS Providers with which you will attend 4-12 hour field internships. 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 Chickenpox, 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 the 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.

The information provided is correct at the time of distribution. All information, including course schedules, is subject to change.

CoAEMSP
The Cape Fear Community College Continuing Education Paramedic program has been issued a Letter of Review by the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

Letter of Review is recognized by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) for eligibility to take the NREMT’s Paramedic credentialing examination(s). However, it is NOT a guarantee of eventual accreditation.
