Think fast. 
Lives depend on you.

“Be it pledged as an Emergency Medical Technician, I will honor the physical and judicial laws of God and man.” - EMT Oath

This career is a real lifesaver.

The sounds of a siren and rotating red lights are your call to action. The difference between life and death rests in your ability to assess and act under pressure during crisis. EMTs and paramedics are often the first to respond to car accidents, heart attacks, multiple casualties and many other types of medical calls. Every case is a new challenge and every situation is a possible life-saving opportunity. This fast-paced, intense medical career is ideal for you if you want to help people in their critical time of need.

In TSTC's Emergency Medical Service program, you’ll learn from experienced, certified instructors in an environment that combines hands-on labs with lecture. You'll gain skills in medical procedures required to assess and treat victims at the scene and en route to the hospital, and you'll get to put your abilities to the test in a clinical learning environment to gain extensive, on-the-job experience. As a program, our goal is to prepare competent entry-level Paramedics in the cognitive (knowledge), psychomotor (skills), and affective (behavior) learning domains, with exit points at the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician, Emergency Medical Technician (Basic), and/or First Responder levels.
