We find that many students don't feel that they were properly prepared for the NREMT exam by their course or instructor. Unfortunately, they don't usually find this out until they have failed it once. That's when they come to EMT National Training.

EMT National Training has accomplished something that few EMS educational institutions can boast. The private training company has helped prepare over 20,000 Paramedic and EMT students for the NREMT examination that determines employment and licensure eligibility in most U.S. states.
"Passing the NREMT exam can be the difference between getting hired or even keeping a current job in EMS (Emergency Medical Services)." says Lead Instructor Ryan Asher a Paramedic and Firefighter. "We find that many students don't feel that they were properly prepared for the NREMT exam by their course or instructor. Unfortunately, they don't usually find this out until they have failed it once. That's when they come to EMT National Training."
Asher and a group of other Paramedics and EMT instructors got the idea for the test prep system in 2005 and began working on putting the application together and writing the questions and rationales that are at the heart of the system. Instructors have now created a database of almost 3000 copyrighted EMS questions and rationales that follow the core curriculum for all levels of EMS certification including First Responder, EMT-Basic, EMT-Intermediate, and Paramedic. Asher says, "We don't just test Paramedic and EMT students, we educate and assess them as well. It is one thing to tell a student that his or her answer is correct or incorrect, it's another to explain why. That is what we do at EMT National Training, we explain why."
In order to be eligible to take the NREMT exam, a student must have completed and passed an EMT or Paramedic course. "This is a challenging exam without the right preparation. It's a mistake to think that doing well in an EMT or Paramedic course means that you will do well on the certification exam." says Asher. "Our instructors hear this all the time, "I did really well in my EMT course, why didn't I pass the NREMT?" Asher says poor preparation on the part of the students and the instructors. "We still see students who are being taught old CPR guidelines in EMT courses. It's more prevalent than you can imagine."
The NREMT exam preparation, tracking, and review system at EMT National Training aims to correct those things that a student may not have learned properly. The system includes an integrated online helpdesk staffed with knowledgeable, licensed Paramedics and EMTs. If a student has difficulty understanding the rationale behind a particular question or behind a specific medical treatment, they can submit a support ticket that is promptly answered by one of the Instructors. Assessment and review of exam results is also available upon request for those students having difficulty passing the NREMT. Instructors will look in detail at the student's examinations and make recommendations for additional course work or remediation.
"We have an outstanding group of Instructors who love to teach." says Asher. "We are dedicated to helping EMT and Paramedic students better understand the core of knowledge necessary to work effectively in pre-hospital medicine as well as how to prepare for the certification and assessment process of the NREMT. A lot of people want to be in this profession, but you don't have a chance unless you pass the examination.
EMT National Training is available online 7 days a week 24 hours a day to accommodate the varied schedules of emergency medical professionals. Subscription rates for the NREMT exam preparation range from $29.95 to $99.95 depending on the level of certification and length of subscription.
