Finding EMT Schools in Texas

Many prospective students begin their search for EMT classes online and our website features a current list of EMT training programs offered by local Texas schools and online colleges and universities. Texas EMT courses are usually offered at technical schools, community colleges, medical training facilities and universities.

Before enrolling in an EMT training program it is wise to read reviews about the institution from current and previous students. This will provide great insight about the program itself, the teaching staff and the job outcome for recent graduates.

When comparing different training programs individuals should pay careful attention to class schedules, location of training facilities and qualifications of teaching staff. It is also wise to consider the reputation of the educational institution itself as many employers and graduate programs will take this factor into consideration when evaluating applicants.

How Much Does EMT Training Cost in Texas?

The average cost for an EMT training program ranges between $500-$2000 and usually takes one to three months to complete. The best way to control the cost of EMT training is to obtain as much education as possible at the junior college level. Basic EMT training can usually be completed at a local Texas community college. More advanced training may warrant the additional expense of private education.

What Coursework Can I Expect?

Texas EMT training courses can be broken down into two different types: Basic level training and Intermediate-Advanced training. Most basic level courses consist of 100 hours of coursework and prepare the individual for all of the essential functions of an EMT. An Intermediate course will usually require 1000 credit hours for completion and include all material covered in a Basic course plus additional curriculum and hands-on practice. The Intermediate-Advanced courses in Texas are also designed to prepare the student to continue on to become a Paramedic.

Learning curriculum for most EMT courses will include basic emergency procedures, review of CPR techniques, proper use of emergency medical equipment such as a defibrillator and administration of IV fluids. The advanced training will include additional studies in cardiology, anatomy, basic science, physiology and life support techniques.

Taking Online EMT Classes

While there are EMT classes available in an online format, people should be aware that an important part of any formal EMT training program will include hands-on practice in a medical facility or training environment. Online classes are best used to supplement or accompany training done in-person. Receiving training in a physical environment allows the student to practice the skills they are being taught and handle the medical equipment required of an emergency medical technician.

For Texas students who live in rural areas and have limited access to local schools it can be advantageous to complete some of their EMT coursework online. Distance learning provides several benefits such as saving money on commuting costs, learning at your own pace, completing courses around your current work schedule and studying from the comfort of your own home. There are many online schools with EMT courses available for Texas students.
