The Emergency Medical Technician Certificate course is a one semester program that prepares the student for eligibility to take the national certification examination by the National Registry of EMT's and then certification by the Texas Department of State Health Services. The Emergency Medical Technician Certificate course is a fifteen credit hour course.

The Emergency Medical Technician Certificate course requires the incoming student to meet EMS Program testing requirements:

  • Workplace Documents Assessment with a score of 5 or greater, or
  • TSI Reading with a score of 351 or greater.

Space is limited and classes tend to fill up very quickly.

 

Students are required to maintain 75% or higher average within the course in order to be eligible for clinical rotations. In addition the student must achieve 75% or higher overall score in each EMSP course to be eligible for a course completion. Students are required to wear an EMS style uniform in the EMSP courses and maintain a professional attitude and appearance.
