"Central Ohio EMS Training continues to excel in the EMS education field.  

Commitment to the students, along with accountability of the students are two of the best traits that come to mind when I think about COEMST.  The staff, no matter their years in the service, take the time to ensure that the students are equipped for the real world.   When students complete the programs at COEMST, we know that they are ready to work in the EMS profession.  The staff's dedication to the students is incredible, and whether it is staying late to help the student understand a topic or answering a phone call about a software program, the staff is available to the student.  

As a graduate of the inaugural Paramedic program myself,  and as an employer of several members who've completed all facets of EMS training, the commitment to the students and the EMS profession is second to none.  

The school offers many different plans of study, which make it easier for students to maintain full-time employment and continue to further their EMS education.  In this day and age, flexibility is key to a successful program.  As a department with a limited training budget, flexibility is something that I need to consider. 

For these reasons, I will continue to utilize the services of Central Ohio EMS training for the initial and ongoing education of EMS providers."
