Here is the link if you need a reasonable accommodation to take your NREMT exam(s). Please read their policies and then follow the steps if you are eligible to receive any sort of accommodation from them. (Instructor candidates, I am including you in this because as a future Instructor, you should also be familiar with their testing policies.) https://content.nremt.org/static/documents/Check_list_for_accommodations_candidates.pdf
When you received your course access email, you are given an instructor’s name and contact information. That person is who you need to email for any questions or if you need help about ANYTHING while you are taking the online portion of your course that has to do with coursework, assignments, exams, or grading. If you don’t get a result within 3 business days, it means it probably went to internet heaven and email again. But when you email others…
Roll Call Issues, Deadlines and Extensions
April 23, 2019
Logging into percomcourses.com and into your class weekly is how we take “roll call” to ensure you are meeting the requirement that you attend weekly.

We do check every few weeks to see where you are in…
Deadlines and Course Access
September 25, 2018
Attention ALL students: When you receive your course access email, it states what your didactic and/or overall deadlines are for your course for which you are enrolled. If you are in Paramedic, it gives you deadlines for P1, and then your deadlines for P2 when you get access to P2. These deadlines are set for a reason, and you should write them down and complete your coursework before the didactic deadline and your skills and rotations before the overall course…
If you missed this lecture from Kabul by fellow Paramedic student, Jeffrey Gibson, you might consider watching it. It is eye-opening. Even though this is from Afghanistan, events like this can and have occurred in the U.S. – the World Trade Center, the Pentagon, the Las Vegas shooting massacre, the Oklahoma City Bombing, shooting events in schools, restaurants and military bases. We must be prepared to be the first responders on scene for LARGE events.

Reminder about Homework ALL Classes
April 19, 2017
Please remember that you MUST send your homework in as you go and not inundate your instructor with most or all of your assignments at one time. If you do the latter, it will significantly slow down grading and posting for you. The instructor will not stop grading everyone else’s submissions (who followed instructions to send them in as they go through the course) to grade a lump sum of assignments for one student.
