Why EMS at MC?
PLEASE NOTE: Completion of Midland College degrees and/or certificates does not guarantee eligibility to take a certification/registry/licensure examination. The eligibility of each person is determined on an individual basis by the regulatory body of the specific discipline. If you have a conviction of a crime other than a minor traffic violation, physical or mental disability/illness, hospitalization/treatment for chemical dependency within the past five years, current intemperate use of drugs or alcohol or a previous denial of a licensure or action by a licensing authority, you will need to contact the specific regulatory body for an individual ruling. Some programs require a criminal background check and urine and drug screen.
Licensing body for this program: Texas Department of State Health Services
To request a review of the impact of criminal history on your potential Paramedic License prior to or during your quest for a degree, visit the department's website and request a “Criminal History Evaluation.”
The website provides information about the licensing process and requirements.
