Emergency Medical Services Professions
All courses of the emergency medical service professions curriculum are approved by the certifying and licensing organization, the Texas Department of State Health Services, and the Bureau of Emergency Management.
All applicants must be able to pass a criminal background check that includes the provision of necessary documentation for the background check agency to make it reliable. Said documentation may include an authenticated social security card and positive identification such as a driver's license or identification card.
