Mount San Antonio College Paramedic Program


Any Paramedics out there go to Mt. SAC Paramedic Program in Walnut, California (Los Angeles County). I need to know an all inclusive price for the program (books, tuition, physical fees, insurance, uniforms . . . everything). In short, if I go to this school, how much would it cost to go from EMT to working on the truck?

Sorry, let me clarify. I have that information, I was wondering if anyone knew the cost of living in the area, the price of any potential insurances required for the class (I've been told different schools require medical insurance, malpractice insurance, etc.), ACLS, PALS, and all the various certifications and licensures required before working as a Paramedic on a truck. Thanks for your help though.

I live about 2 miles from the school (10 Minute drive) and I pay $1200 to rent a house in the area. I went through the EMT course there but not Paramedic yet, so I can't say about the other stuff.

I would say if you live in the area for 5 months of didactic - you can rent a room for about $500 a month (that's what I paid last year). Class fees and books are about $3,000 with about $1,000 in various other fees. You will not be able to work for 8 months. If you are planning on living in the area, not working, and want an estimated amount you would need. I would say $10,000 - $12,000 with food and gas.

Thanks for your help guys. I'm a supervisor & trying to create a paramedic sponsorship program for some of the EMT's in our company. The feedback is appreciated.

So I am looking into this school and was wondering if the didactic portion is 16 weeks as it says or if it has been lengthened? And how long does the whole duration normally take? Thank you.

@AnteaterMedic what did you think of the program and how was the didactic portion for you? I haven't been able to find any graduates of the program to get their opinion about it and what they found to be the most difficult aspects.
