Blinn EMT program announces information sessions


The Blinn College District Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Program invites prospective students interested in becoming EMT-Basic certified to attend one of two upcoming virtual information sessions.

Information sessions providing valuable information about vaccination requirements, course costs, and required screenings will take place on Zoom from noon until 1 p.m. on Monday, Sept. 28, and from 5-6 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 8. To participate, prospective students must register by noon the day prior to the info session. Program instructors will lead the sessions and answer questions from prospective students.

Blinn’s EMT Program is a one-semester program that prepares students for certification by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) and the Texas Department of State Health Services. The seven-credit hour program includes classroom and lab instruction, and students participate in 116 clinical hours. Clinical rotations include riding third on an ambulance, as well as supervised time in emergency and labor and delivery departments. Blinn’s EMT Program is based at the RELLIS Academic Complex at the RELLIS Campus in Bryan.

“EMTs are on the front line of emergency medicine and we pride ourselves in making sure our students have the resources they need to be successful,” said EMS Program Director Zack Varner. “Our skilled faculty are dedicated to developing future leaders in the field. As long as students are invested in their work, they will be successful.”
