Become a Texas EMT Today
Within the health care field, you can take several fulfilling career paths. One of the fastest-growing careers that allows you to get out in your community and make a direct difference is a certified emergency medical technician (EMT).
An EMT has many responsibilities, from responding to emergency calls to ensuring patients receive time-sensitive medical assistance as they travel to a hospital. These health care professionals must have the necessary training to deliver care when it’s needed most.
There’s a growing demand for qualified individuals to graduate and fill roles as EMTs in cities across the United States.
At PERCOMOnline, we make it possible for you to meet this demand and start serving those in your community. We offer open enrollment EMT certification courses in Texas, providing the education and clinical experience you need to become certified.
Experience a Flexible, Accessible Program
While our main location is in Abilene, Texas, we have a regional presence. Our network extends throughout the majority of the United States. No matter where you’re located, you can access our entry-level EMT certification classes through your smartphone, tablet or computer.
Our flexible and affordable programs offer working professionals an opportunity to pursue their passions and make a difference.
Affordable Online EMT Training in Texas and Beyond
While our EMT programs are licensed in Texas, out-of-state students are also welcome. Some requirements vary by state — we’ll provide you with extra documentation or rotation opportunities if necessary.
While you will be required to attend clinical rotations in Texas, you’ll be able to complete the rest of your program online. Once you complete the program, you can transfer your certification via reciprocity for licensure in any state.
