I can’t say enough good things about this program. I live in Seattle, WA and started the online program…“Bootcamp” at the end of the didactic is tough, but REWARDING!! I would recommend this to EVERYONE. The instructors were amazing, the staff are fantastic, and I’ve made many many life long friends.

Gabe Gunning, Maine Paramedic Graduate

NMETC’s model is the future of optimal healthcare education delivery models. The focused and intense didactic portion of the course was made user friendly by enabling the student to study in a familiar setting. The practicum was ideal insomuch as it was a precisely focused, directed, and high intensity program working on skills for paramedic practice with an incredible 3:1 ratio of students to instructors. The clinical portion of the course was unsurpassed as the clinical hospital and ride time options allowed for a variety of choices utilizing local and regional options.
