Student Testimonials

  • I highly recommend NMETC's paramedic program to anyone looking to advance their knowledge of medicine and further their careers in the Emergency Medical Services.

  • Without your program, there is no way I could have achieved this milestone while still working full time.

  • It was an honor to be a part of your program. I would not be a licensed paramedic if it were not for NMETC.
