Axon Education’s MISSION is to provide excellent post-secondary education in an effective, efficient, and student-centered manner.
The company was founded in 2016 to serve the Texas firefighting community by providing EMS educational opportunities that were flexible enough to ensure success among participants while reducing overhead, inconvenience, and overtime required to send employees through traditional face-to-face EMS courses.
Axon’s adaptive curriculum provides a highly personalized educational experience based upon a student’s demonstrated success with the course material, which translates to convenience for the student. Many students complete courses well before the deadline for the Maximum Course Duration. The flexible schedule and online components of the program reduce the need for students to miss work or spend time away from family.

FROM OUR PRESIDENT
Thank you for your interest in Axon Education – Texas EMS School. If we can serve you in any way we look forward to beginning a dialogue with you, and getting to know you. Our mantra at Axon is the Latin phrase “Primum Respectum Date” which means “first give respect.” We don’t always live up to it, but we try, and we make it a front-and-center affective-lesson in our courses.
For us it primarily means we want to offer respect to our students. It isn’t easy to face the struggles needed to complete a course or program and begin a new career, and we want to be seen as partners in that struggle, not one of the reasons for the struggle. Our courses have rigor, and not everyone passes, but we believe that if we start by respecting the student we can remove all the hurdles possible to encourage success.
For our students we want this to be a core lesson about the ethics, professionalism and character that comes from being a part of the Emergency Medical Services community. In our clinical rotations, our students are likely to encounter people who are having one of the worst days of their lives. Emergencies bring about fear, and fear causes us to not be at our best. We believe if our students learn to first offer respect to the patients they serve, they can improve the healing process and achieve better outcomes.
The decision to become a first responder isn’t an easy one. It takes courage and a desire to serve others. First responders don’t always receive the respect they deserve, when people don’t understand what they are called upon to do. But we hope that our students will earn respect by offering it first to others.
If you are ready to join the EMS community, you have come to the right place to start.
Blessings, KB Massingill Ph.D
