Course Description

Do you want to give back to your community by having the ability to provide basic medical care during an emergency? Become an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) and learn how to stabilize a patient prior to the arrival of Emergency Medical Services (EMS).

The Emergency Medical Responder course is a 64-hour course and meets the National Standard Curriculum core competencies. The course consists of both classroom lectures and hands-on skills training covering patient assessment, treatment, and the use of various medical equipment.

Class Materials

Prior to attending class, you must purchase the Emergency Medical Responder 7th Ed. textbook and Navigate Course Management access bundle (ISBN# 9781284225914), which can be purchased here.  If you prefer an electronic textbook, you can purchase the eBook with Nav2 Advantage access here.  Please note, we cannot guarantee internet access at the class location.  Please ensure the textbook is downloaded to your device before coming to class.  You will be given information on how to access the online course materials, including a course code, upon registration.

Attendance Requirements

Class attendance is an essential part of the education
process and participants in TEEX courses are expected to attend all class
sessions and field exercises. This course requires participants to attend a
minimum of 90% of the didactic hours as a component of successful course
completion. This means you are allowed to miss a maximum of 6 hours of
classroom time to still be eligible to continue to the next phase of training. During
the course, your instructor will review any additional attendance requirements,
for example a field exercise that cannot be missed.

Annual Fire Training School Registration Requirements

Annual Schools require that you use the online registration system. We have streamlined the process for payment via Texas A&M Forest Service funding (H.B. 2604 or TIFMAS Grant Assistance Program). Before you register for a course, you must attain approval from the Texas A&M Forest Service for training tuition. On your approval letter, there will be a voucher approval number. Each student approved for tuition grant assistance will need this number.

Register for your course through your TEEX student portal. On the payment section, choose “Purchase Order” and enter the “VFDE” number (for example “E123456”). If your department was approved for multiple students, each student up to the maximum approved in the training tuition request may use the same VFDE number. If the total amount due is greater than the total amount allowed by the tuition voucher, the individual/department will be responsible for the difference. You are no longer required to email or fax the approval letter to TEEX/ESTI unless it is specifically requested by TEEX staff. 

The PO contact email needs to be either yourself or a responsible person within your organization.

A new data field has been added to the payment process. The Tax ID (Tax Payer ID, EIN or FEIN) will be the number assigned to your organization. The field is required and needs to be in the following format: xx-xxxxxxx.

Annual Fire Training School Late Registration

The full rate will be applied after the early-bird registration deadline.
