    Can anyone point me in the right direction for a good path to achieve this while minimally disrupting a regular work schedule?

    Not quite; all paramedics are EMT's, but not all EMT's are paramedics. There are 3 levels of EMT;

    EMT-Basic (formerly EMT-Ambulance)

    Advanced EMT (formerly EMT-Intermediate)

    I'm in Texas. Thank you very much for the direction. They see to be the most respected online paramedic program in Texas. They certainly have the vest pass rate.

    They're nationally accredited and have a partnership with the regionally accredited Kilgore College. It's not required, but most online EMT programs don't bother with accreditation. Percom is probably the best option for a distance learning, paramedic program. There are cheaper options for EMT Basic, though.
