This course will prepare the currently certified Emergency Medical Technician for recertification as required by New York State every three years. Students will be re-certified in CPR, updated on protocol and treatment practices and will receive instruction on the new components of the basic EMT curriculum.
Upon successful completion of the course, the candidate will take the New York State Basic EMT certification exam. Written & Practical challenge components will be offered and required classes will be determined by the student's performance on these exams.
Low cost group purchasing of necessary equipment (stethoscope, blood pressure cuff, penlight, etc.) will be available.
Students should have a blue or black ink pen and a least one 3” binder for materials, and a watch. #2 pencils are required for written exams.
New York State funding is available for members of certified ambulance agencies. This funding covers the cost of the course, but not the mandatory CPR certification or the student manual. To use the NY State fund, please bring an agency verification form with an original signature the registration night for the class.
