Grant brings $309,760 to SWTJC for medic training

Southwest Texas Junior College in Uvalde has been awarded a $309,760 grant to purchase and install equipment to provide 150 students with emergency medical technician and paramedic training.

The Texas Workforce Commission has awarded 26 grants totaling $5 million to public community and technical colleges and independent school districts for programs that focus on supporting high-demand occupations through the Jobs and Education for Texas grant program.

The grant will defray the start-up costs associated with developing the new Emergency Medical Technician program in Eagle Pass.

SWTJC will offer the EMT Basic Level program starting June 5 in Eagle Pass and Aug. 28 in Uvalde. The new program will offer individuals the opportunity to acquire a level-one certificate, which will provide the skills to gain employment as an emergency medical technician.
