As part of the training, students spend time with instructors in the hospital and on an ambulance. At the end of one semester, successful students are eligible to apply to the Texas Department of State Health Services for certification as an EMT after they have passed the credentialing exam through the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. Once a student has completed their EMT, they are eligible to apply for advanced coursework
