Be ready to help.

We educate and train EMTs to provide exceptional care in the face of crisis.

Want to help as an EMT?

We'll make sure you're ready.

There’s nothing more empowering than being the person in the room equipped to respond in the face of crisis. Our job is to educate and train you to become that person, offering excellent care - every time.

Part of the process is getting you certified. But not just certified for certification’s sake alone. We want you confidently responding whenever there's a need, while avoiding the tragic consequences of being underprepared.

Because - when it’s time to help - the life in your hands is counting on you to get it right.

  • Get Trained

    Our goal is to get you certified. But, more than that, everything we do is aimed to make sure you’re confident, quick to react, and ready to save lives.

  • Get Certified

    We don’t want you to just pass your certification. We want you to crush it. Walk out without a doubt about your skills & ready to take care of people!

  • Make a Difference

    Making a difference is what motivates you, but we also want you to make a living. Once you’re certified, you can get to work doing what you love.

We're so proud of our graduates.

  • The instructors are knowledgeable, experienced, and have a great ability to make the material understood to almost every student in the class. Couple this with a well thought-out syllabus and the opportunity for plenty of hands-on access and practice with the simulation equipment make for quite a winning combination.

  • I'm 53 and had to push myself but thanks to our [instructors], I passed the NREMT exam on the first try and feel that I was actually over prepared for the exam and practicals. In fact two paramedics that I met said that [NMETC] puts out "street ready" EMTs in their opinion.

  • [NMETC] provides excellent instruction and lab skills that prepare for a lifetime of service. They are also super accommodating in providing great Vegan food alternatives for lunches during bootcamp too (for my Vegan friends out there)! I’m so grateful for this EMT training experience and the friends I’ve made along the way!
