Student Testimonials

  • NMETC's class is not decent, it’s exceptional! Without the flexibility of the online program, there was no way I could have reached my dream of becoming a paramedic.

  • The program proved to be an answer to my prayers. From day one, it was an environment of learning, an environment of complimenting us on our strengths, and providing the means for us to improve upon our weaknesses.

  • I wanted to thank you again for the amazing, online, distance paramedic program that you have put together. I would have never been able to move forward from my intermediate with a full time job and family.
