The Bulverde Spring Branch Centre for Emergency Health Sciences (BSBcEHS) is offering an approved Texas Department of State Health Services EMT-B initial training course. This course is a hybrid-online program, affording the student the upmost in schedule flexibility coupled with superior sessions. BSBcEHS prides itself on our innovative and dynamic instruction focused on student success. Students will participate in both a virtual and actual classroom, in addition to practical lab and clinical experiences. The virtual classroom is facilitated through a learning management system located on the internet. Students must have computer access with email and internet. The virtual classroom is comprised of online activities such as discussion boards, online research, wikis and quizzes monitored by a certified educator with a masters degree in distance learning. The face-to-face classroom time is programmed to blend the cognitive (book work) with the psychomotor (hands-on) and affective (personal development) learning processes together in a fast-paced but fun environment full of activities and practice. Successful students are self-motivated, vested in their learning process and have a genuine interest in becoming an EMT.
