EMT-Basic

We offer multiple accelerated options for our EMT courses.
Train for certification and gain real hands-on experience.

Our EMT Basic Program

If caring for sick and injured people in emergency situations sounds rewarding, a career as an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) could be for you. EMTs work in Emergency Medical Services (EMS) and are a vital link in the chain of health care. EMTs are first responders to medical incidents and accident scenarios where they provide care and facilitate transportation to more advanced medical facilities.

Get certified in less time and gain real hands-on experience with Texas EMS Academy. Taught by veteran EMS professionals, our program prepares you for real-life challenges using current technology and techniques. This includes realistic emergency simulations and local ambulance clinical hours, allowing you to experience what it means to be an EMT before achieving certification. We is also happy to provide testing assistance for those who need a little extra help.

Taught by experienced EMS professionals with current expertise, our workshop-style classes include real-world implementations, hands-on training, and instruction to ensure you master the knowledge and skills you need to save lives. All students will also have clinical rotations on an ambulance and in an Emergency Room setting to further prepare them for success.

14 Day Program

Our 14-Day accelerated EMT program is the fastest in the state. We know time is money, and we don’t want to waste either of yours. This program is 14 days straight (including weekends) from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM. These 14 days include classroom lecture and clinical hours both on an ambulance and in the emergency room.

30 Day Program

We know not everyone can be here for 14 days straight. You might have work, a family, or maybe there is another reason why the 14 day program won’t work for you. That’s why we also offer a 30-Day program. We cover the exact same material and you get to experience the exact same number of clinical hours on an ambulance and emergency room, just over a longer period of time due to shorter amount of hours per day. The classroom lecture portion of this class is Monday through Friday from 6:30 PM until 10:30 PM. The ambulance and emergency room rotations are Saturday and Sunday from 8:00 AM until 8:00 PM.
