Upon completion of the dual credit EMT program, students graduate with a valuable credential that will assist them in gaining entry-level work in the field of Emergency Medical Services. Students may also continue on to higher certificate levels or complete an A.A.S. degree. The EMT certificate is recognized by TEA to count towards accountability. The EMT program typically begins in the fall semester of senior year. Students must be 18 years of age at the time they sit for the National Registry exam.
