You can become a nationally certified paramedic in only ten months through our partnership.

Paramedic Training

Texas EMS Academy has partnered with School of EMS to now offer a pathway to a paramedic education for our students. A paramedic is a highly trained and
skilled medical professional who is educated to carry out many of the same duties as a physician. Paramedics can examine, evaluate and treat patients with equipment and medications usually only found in the emergency department of a hospital.

Paramedics are typically utilized as emergency care practitioners on ambulances or on first response emergency vehicles. Paramedics are in extremely high demand throughout the United States. (See the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics)

10 Months

This is a hybrid Live/Online course that lasts 44 weeks (10 months).

Applicants must be a current EMT prior to admission to the paramedic program. 

The paramedic program is accredited by CAAHEP (CoAEMSP program 600463). All qualified School of EMS graduates are eligible to attempt the National Registry Exam.

Drug Policy

Due to the difficulty in separating marijuana use vs CBD use in positive THC cases, students are not allowed to use any CBD products while attending any courses. Students will be required to take a ten-panel drug screening on the first day of class.  Any student whose drug screening results return positive without proper documentation will be found to be in violation of the student code of conduct and be dismissed from the program without a refund.
