Notice to Students Regarding Licensing - Paramedic

Effective September 1st 2017, HB 1508 amends the Texas Occupations Code Section 53 that requires education providers to notify you a potential or enrolled student that a criminal history may make you ineligible for an occupational license upon program completion. The following website provides links to information about the licensing process and requirements. https://www.dshs.texas.gov/emstraumasystems/qicriminal.shtm

Should you wish to request a review of the impact of criminal history on your potential Paramedic License prior to or during your quest for a degree, you can visit this link and request a “Criminal History Evaluation.”
