I completed two masters degrees online and taught online for two universities for 11 years and understand that online... learning is NOT for everyone. That being said, if you are an independent learner and are willing to put in the time and effort to learn what you need to learn, PERCOM may be for you. Personally, I like the ability to get through the modules as rapidly or as slow as needed. If there is a complaint that I have about the EMT course, it would be that the modules and exams do not match up well with the recommended textbook. From a pedological / androgological perspective, I believe that this is a mistake. I've been an EMT in the past so most of what I have learned thus far as not new to me but for someone who is new to EMS, I believe that a structured curriculum that follows the textbook (and maybe even incorporating a workbook or having an online homework management system would be good) is key to the retention and success of new to EMS students. The only other complete that I have is that the course interface needs a LOT of work. It would be nice if a Canvas or Blackboard interface was used. The PERCOM website needs quite a bit of revision. That being said, I am doing well in the course and look forward to progressing to Paramedic 1 and hopefully Paramedic 2 before I start medical school.read more

Percom is the future of EMS education. Everyone who works here is dedicated to your success. You will have to work hard... and do some things that you wouldn't have to do in a traditional program. All of that will make you a better paramedic. With fantastic clinical sites, whatever your career goal is, you will feel prepared with percom.read more

This school was great! It offered me the flexibility to work while completing the paramedic program. Part of the... requirements of the course is to do 3 video chats in a group with the medical director (one of the best parts of the program). They are way more in depth than any textbook can teach you and you have the chance to ask questions as well. This program requires a lot of self taught and experience as well. It's no paramedic in a can course. The program is not for people who want to just get by. The requirements to pass the program are high but fair which will ensure that you will be the best practitioner you can be. It also helps you prepare for the NREMT exam which will feel like a breeze after this. I would recommend Wilson N Jone hospital for clinicals. You will get a chance to meet Dr. Frame (Medical director and founder). You will have a chance to learn many valuable lessons that most Doctors won't teach. Overall, I couldn't have asked for a better school! The staff are very friendly, polite and fair. They do their best to help you out and ensure you have the best experience while in school.read more

My paramedic instructor was awesome. Willing to help and answer any questions I had. Gabriel especially was helpful... during the live instruction. Just like any online course you need to be driven and need to keep up on things to get it done. Nobody is going to hold your hard. Even though I didn’t have any clinic sites close to me at the start of the program, I was able to set them up fairly easily. I did good at my clinic sites and felt prepared. I would suggest this program to those who want flexibility and are organized and driven, and shouldn’t you be all that if you are going to be a paramedic anyway?read more

This was the only paramedic school that was able to allow me to continue to work full time, raise my family, and still... complete and test for NREMT. No better program out there for working people that want to obtain/upgrade their certifications. One word of advice that I'd give to anyone considering a hybrid program like percom...you get out of it what you put in. Much of the studying is on you so ensure you ask questions and ask for help if you feel you dont quite grasp a topic.read more

This program is a great program for those who are unable to quit their full time jobs. It was a pleasure to go through... this program and the staff was very helpful. Although it took me longer than expected to finish the program, I would like to thank everyone at PerCom Online for their patience and giving me the push I needed to finish what I started. I feel very knowledgeable that I can perform my tasks as a Paramedic. Thank You!!read more

It is only a 1 star due to not being able to give any. Under no circumstances will I recommend this school to anyone. ... This place is very disorganized and you have to do their work for them.read more

This program is great. I started the Paramedic P2 program in Jan 2018 and finished it in Oct 2018. I had a very tough... and busy schedule which did not allow me a lot of time to do clinical rotations or my required EMS rotations. The staff at Percom worked with me and sure I got all of my clinical rotations and EMS rotations in a timely matter. This is 5 star service.read more
