The state provides an excellent summary of the Texas State EMT Licensure and Certification Requirements. As with most states, Texas is now using the NREMT examination process as a basis for their licensure. To be an EMT in Texas you must be at least eighteen years of age and have a high school diploma or GED equivalent. You must pass an approved EMT training course and then pass both the NREMT computer exam as well as the NREMT practical examination.
The initial Texas EMS Certification and License Application must be filled out and returned with the necessary fees and information
You can find out exactly how the NREMT computerized testing signup process works by visiting this page. It gives a step by step of how to register for the NREMT exam once you have completed the prerequisites. If you are still just preparing for the NREMT exam then be sure to take a look at our online NREMT practice tests. There are almost 2500 EMT and Paramedic questions that come with answers and reasonings. You generate exams based on category of emergency or just random and then take and grade the exams online.
If you are wanting to check your Texas EMT license status you can do so by accessing the Current EMT Certification Lists that are updated a couple times a week. If you need recertification be sure to start the process several months in advance of your expiration date. Information on Texas EMT recertification can be found at the link above.
