I took my EMT program there 4 years ago. Now I'm working as a paramedic in another state and I credit my skills and abilities to my quality education at CIEMT. The staff is the best at teaching, and reliably turn out high quality EMTs. Thanks for all you have done for me, y'all.

Toughest class out there. Be ready to study while you work, eat, and during your breaks. No other calss can better prepare you for the real world. No uniforms, quick class. Make sure you study anatomy before coming, it'd sure help. Attension to detail is where most students fail.

They really prepare you for working in the emergency field and make sure you're able to handle difficult situations under pressure... The course itself is highly informative, and goes into a bit more detail to help prepare you a bit for paramedic school, should you want it. The instructors are very helpful and try and give you as many tips as they can for how things actually happen in the real world. I would highly recommend this course to other people.

Real world training from real world experienced instructors. If you ever need to use the skills in a real world situation, you better hope you learned them from Matt and his experienced team of instructors. If you can complete their course, the NREMT is a breeze.
