EMT Original Training Course Frequently Asked Questions
What will we be doing
in this class and what is involved?
Class sessions are broken into either lecture or skill. Lecture sessions are all presented using
the latest power point slides and videos. In addition to in-classroom material, the student will also have access to the textbook
publishers web-site which will give the student access to a repeat of classroom material, practice test questions, and other
study materials. In the beginning of each class, there will be a multiple choice 10 to 15 question quiz which will be
reviewed that evening. The night of skill sessions, students will be split into small groups where they will participate
in hands-on practice of the many different skills that EMTS will perform in the field.
Who is eligible to enroll? What
do we need and what are the prerequisites?
The student must be 18 years of age by the last day of month in which the

According to the NYS EMS code, applications for certification
or recertification must not have been convicted or charged with certain misdemeanors or felonies. Any student who has been
convicted of any crime, will need to be cleared by the State Health Department before they can sit for the state exam. You
can take the course but before you sit for the state exam you must be cleared by the State Health Department. This investigation
will only be done if you are a student in the class.

to take the EMT-B refresher course
you completed a NYS EMT course and were issued a NYS EMT ID number you can take the refresher course regardless of how long
ago your card expired.
My certification expires on a particular
date. When should I take the refresher?
You should be in a refresher course at least 6 to 9 months before your card expires. If you take the state-exam
in the same month that your card expires the card will be valid until the results are completed (usually 4 to 6 weeks after

If you are planning on working, or attending school in New York State and you currently hold an EMS certification,
or license from another state or the United States Military, you may be eligible to obtain a New York State Certification
through the reciprocity process. If you would like to obtain NYS certification under reciprocity please visit the NYS
website: http://www.health.state.ny.us/nysdoh/ems/main.htm and download the Information Packet for New York State
EMT Reciprocity (PDF 343Kb, 16 pages). Once you have completed and filed the reciprocity application DO NOT CALL the
Bureau of EMS to check on the status of your application. You will receive notification in the mail when the process is complete.
Attention Reciprocity Applicants with national Registry Certification!!
New York State does not grant certification as an EMT or advanced EMT based solely on National Registry Status.
