Paramedic Certification Requirements
I have moved from kansas Where I have served as a Firefighter Under a EMT -Basic certification.
Very few Kansas Firefighters are Paramedic certified or are required to be.
I am wondering if the majority of Texas Fire departments require Paramedic certification? If so this is going to be a big decision whether I should devote my time and commit myself to obtaining paramedic status? Any suggestions for obtaining paramedic certification if the department will not train or pay for training? If the department provides ALS/EMS services iis that going to be a indicator whether I would need to be Paramedic certiified?
