This exceeds ODPS requirements and makes our program more in depth and gives students more time to retain and apply the knowledge learned. The clinical rotations can be done in local emergency rooms and over 40 different ambulances across Northeast Ohio. This program utilizes Virtual Reality Technology to help teach critical thinking skills. The program also includes the cost of up to ALL six attempts of the NREMT exam.
