    Question TEXAS medics! I need your help!

    ok first off, this is a state re-certification question, but it goes a little bit deeper than that...i'll give you the short and sweet.

    2005 - became certified EMT-P, worked for 3 years, decided to join military
    2008 - joined the military

    Since joining the Navy, I have let my NREMT expire (not worried about that though) and in OCT 2010, my state cert expired (i DO want to keep this one though)...some of the many joys of being deployed for over 2 1/2 years of my current 3 years active duty.

    I have all of my CE's done, as of late May 2011, but it says I need to do a skills proficiency form, according to TX DSHS. This is hard for me to do because, #1, i'm still deployed and will be until end of the year, and #2 my one year past my expiration date is coming up in October.

    I need to keep it current - as I plan to go back on an ambulance once my tour is over with.

    so....any suggestions?

    Thanks!

    I believe that since you have been on active duty they may waive the skills for you if you have your CE hours. Without a doubt though you will need to contact them. Try their email.
