Outcomes

Retention Rates

Retention Data is calculated for various accrediting agencies and generally measures how many students who began a course/program completed that course/program.  

NREMT Pass Rates

Axon Education Consortium and Texas EMS School tracks student outcomes related to success with National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) examination results for both the Psychomotor and Cognitive Examinations. Additionally student retention and employment statistics are maintained for accreditation purposes. 

NREMT Cognitive Examination
The following statistics represent students who graduated from an Axon – Texas EMS School course who attempted the NREMT exam.  Data for students who pass the exam is collected routinely throughout the year, however data for those who fail the exam can only be finalized after the end of a 24 month waiting period and is often  published in February two years following the end of each calendar year.  This means that data for the two most recent calendar years may be incomplete.  Note also that this data does not include students who passed an Axon course but chose NOT to attempt the appropriate NREMT exam.  The Texas Department of State Health Services (DSHS) publishes a similar but not identical statistic.*  “None” indicates that there were no students for that particular reporting period.
