General Questions

Is OMT accredited? We have chosen not to become accredited as it would cause significant increases in tuition costs. However, all of our courses and instructors are certified by the Oregon Higher Education Coordinating Commission (HECC), as well as the National Healthcareer Association (NHA).

What percentage of our students pass the NHA exam? We take great pride in the fact that over 97% of our students successfully pass the NHA certification exam!

What are the dates for the next term? We offer phlebotomy, EKG and pharmacy programs throughout the academic year (except summer). Terms typically start at the beginning of January, May and September.

Do we offer CNA courses? We do not offer CNA courses, however, we encourage you to apply with our next door neighbors EMT Associates for their CNA program. We partner with EMT Associates to allow our EKG students to take CPR and First-Aid training sessions.

Do we require a background check? While we do not require a background check, your future employers might. We recommend that you check with possible employers to see if they require a background check and what their policies are. ​However, for those interested in becoming a pharmacist you will have to have your fingerprints recorded and you will have a background check done in order to become a licensed pharmacy technician.

Financial Questions

Do we offer financial options?

Do we accept FAFSA? Oregon Medical Training is unable to accept the Free Application for Federal Student Aid (FAFSA).

Is the tuition eligible for tax deduction? Unfortunately, we are not considered an eligible education institution (we do not classify as a college or university) and can not provide you a 1098-T form, including the EIN number (Tax ID), for tax deduction purposes.

Enrollment Questions

How do I enroll?

What if I am working with a financial support program? All financial assistance programs require you to submit a letter of acceptance from our school. If you are working alongside a financial support program, such as WorkSource Lane or STEP, you may receive a letter of acceptance if your financial representative confirms you're a client of theirs. Therefore, we can admit you into our program prior to you paying the minimum deposit and tuition.

What are the required textbooks?

What is a waitlist? A waitlist will be started after a program has reached its capacity. Applicants who follow all enrollment steps will be added to the waitlist and may be offered a spot if a current student withdraws prior to the commencement of classes.

How will I know I am enrolled? After you submit your enrollment documents we will review them and then send you an invoice. Once the invoice is paid you will be emailed a letter of acceptance.

What is the deadline to enroll? While we don't have a specific deadline, we do have a rough deadline usually one week before commencement of classes. We accept the first students who submit their enrollment forms and pay their fees. Class sizes are limited, so the sooner you enroll the better!

What happens if I don't pay the deposit? You will not be enrolled until the deposit is paid.

Can I transfer to a different term? It may be possible to transfer to a different term on a case-by-case basis. Please send us an email request with your situation, and we will work with you to create your transfer.

How do I withdraw from a course? You will need to submit a Student Request Application (SRA). If approved, a check will be mailed to you within 3-5 business days. Please refer to the school catalog for our Cancellation and Refund Policies (OAR 715-045-0001).

Miscellaneous Questions

Do we help with job placement? While we do not provide job placement programs, our Administrator does offer one-on-one assistance with building your resume’, creating letters of introduction and developing your interview skills. Please contact our Administrator to make an appointment.

Will my certificate be credible? By successfully completing a program from our school, you will be eligible to take a National Healthcareer Association certification exam. If you successfully pass the NHA exam, you will be adding credible qualifications and experience to your resume. We offer medical training that most employers ask for and require for employment. We recommend that you check with your potential employer beforehand — especially if you're applying to a clinic or hospital in Oregon or out-of-state to see if your OMT certificate and transcript is valuable to their services.

Will I receive a certificate or transcript upon graduation? After graduation you will receive a certificate of course completion and an official transcript for your records.

Do you need copies of your completion documents?

What COVID-19 protocols do we have? We ask our students to stay home if they're sick or revealing any flu-like or COVID-19 symptoms. If you have been in contact with a person who tested positive for COVID-19 — isolate and do not enter the classroom.
