Rules. If you wanna play the game, you gotta know the rules. It’s no different whether you’re a physician, nurse, or EMT at any certification level.
And Texas wants to be sure we know the rules of our profession. Starting September 1, 2017, all certified EMTs at all levels of certification will need to complete an approved jurisprudence exam continuing education course before they can recertify. Guess where you can find one of those courses? 🙂
