According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment of paramedics and EMTs is expected to grow by 19 percent through 2016. Opportunities will be best for those who have advanced certifications in emergency medical services.
EMS professionals play a direct role in the care of critical and non-critical patients. Paramedics and EMTs work for ambulance providers, fire departments, emergency departments, intensive care units, air ambulances, helicopter rescue services or industrial safety programs.
Our graduate success for paramedics is measured by:
- First-time pass rate of 96% on the National Registry Examination (Top 5 % of Texas and National scores)
- Post-employment field training period which is one-half to one-third that of graduates from other programs
- Ease of employment: Employers seek TCC graduates
