Where are you located? We are in the Public Service Careers Building. The address is 1205 Amburn Road, Texas City, TX 77591. We are across the street from
the main campus and we can be found between the DPS and a Texas City Fire Department
station—we share a driveway with them.
What are clinicals and how do they work? Clinicals are your rotations in the hospital and on an ambulance. There is a mandatory
clinical orientation scheduled for the first or second Saturday (0800-1700) of class
that will answer all of your questions. You can also see our Clinical Rotation Information link for more information.
Is my (fire/military/other) physical acceptable? Because we need program-specific release from your physician, you must use our Physical Form.
What if I think there may be a problem with my background? You need to contact Michael Cooper to run a preliminary background check before registering for classes.
I am a nurse. How would I go about getting my paramedic certification? If you are an RN, you will need to come in and visit with program director Michael Cooper. The requirements will be set up based on your clinical experience—we require at
least one year of experience in an ER or ICU. You must be self-disciplined because
this process is completed at your own pace. Unfortunately, the Texas DSHS does not
allow this option for LVNs.
How do I register? Click the link on the left for the certification you seek. Scroll down to "Application
and Registration Procedures" for a complete list. Also be sure to look at "Prerequisites."
I let my certification lapse. How can I re-certify? If you are within 90 days of its lapse, you must re-test all skills and have completed
a formal refresher course. If you are more than one year past expiration, the state
allows only one option—start all over.
