Thanks to COVID-19, Heather Loman’s NREMT exam kept getting pushed back. The delay meant she needed a refresher on her knowledge, so she turned to Pocket Prep.


“I spent eight years working as a CNA and decided I wanted to do something more. I then signed up for an accelerated EMT course and spent the next few weeks studying and learning to graduate from my EMT class (I was the number one student!) I got my state license a week after graduation.

The state I live in doesn’t require the NREMT, but it’s on the border of a state that does.

I landed my dream job in the NREMT state, so I got my provisional license and started working. I set a date in February to take my NREMT. Then, COVID-19 happened. My date kept getting pushed further and further back. Eventually, I got an email saying that I would be allowed to take my registry exam in May.

Knowing I needed to brush-up on my NREMT information, I downloaded the Premium Pocket Prep EMT app and took tests daily. I loved the explanations at the end of questions and how it told me which areas I was struggling with. It really helped me focus on my weak areas while keeping up my strong points.

I took my NREMT on May 16th and finished the test in under 30 minutes. I passed my registry with 100 questions on my first try! I absolutely credit that success to the way Pocket Prep helped me study.”
