Phlebotomy and EKG
The phlebotomy and EKG seminar does not consist of book work or written exam, rather we collaborate with a vendor named Medical2, Inc. Medical2 provides an intense 8-hour workshop teaching the skills needed to pass the exam. Before sessions, all participants will be taught the proper handling and concepts of the procedure to be performed. Students prove competency on Medical2 specifically designed mannequins and live draws. The mannequins simulate the human antecubital region (where blood is drawn) as accurately as possible, all while providing a simulated blood return for better understanding and reinforcement of the procedure for the participant. Upon successful completion of the workshop, the participant will receive manuals by email and a national certification by mail. The certificate is available to following Monday after the course. Course included needle/syringe draws, evacuated systems, finger sticks, pediatrics, heel sticks, blood smears, butterfly needles, and to set-up and perform EKGs (Note** EKG interpretation is not taught in this course).
Free Car Seat Inspection
National CPS Certification Training is a program of Safe Kids Worldwide, which is the certifying body and responsible for managing all aspects of the program. SIEMT works closely with the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (responsible for the curriculum) and the National Child Passenger Safety Board (provides recommendations and guidance). CPS technicians do so much to help keep kids safe, from car seat checks to helping parents and caregivers understand all they can do to prevent unintentional injuries in and around cars. SIEMT offers this service, free of charge, at community events or it can be arranged. Contact us for more information.

Pharmacology is often described as a bridge science because it incorporates knowledge and skills from several basic science disciplines including physiology, biochemistry and cell and molecular biology. SIEMT offers a basic pharmacology course that is between 2-4 hours depending on the audience and includes a summative examination. We explain the basics of pharmacology, pharmacodynamics, measurements, percentages, doses of various drugs.
An electrocardiogram records the electrical signals in the heart. Also abbreviated as an EKG or ECG, an electrocardiogram is a common and painless test used to quickly detect heart problems and monitor the heart’s health. Based on what an EKG shows, a healthcare provider may be able to treat a potential life threatening arrythmia and limit dame to the patient and/or heart muscle. SIEMT EKG courses can be tailored for both simply performing EKGs as well as reading and interpreting the rhythms.

NYS 18 Hour Concealed Carry – 3 Day Class
Community courseThis is the new 18 hour class, (Also called the 16+2 class or 18 hour class), that NY State now requires all NY State residents take to apply for a NY State Concealed Carry license. (once referred to as a pistol permit class or handgun safety class). Starting September 1st 2022, NY State has implemented the new CCIA law. (Concealed Carry Improvement Act) New applicants must take this class to apply for a NY State concealed carry license.Only residents of NYC, Suffolk, Westchester, and Nassau Counties – even if they already have a pistol license, must take this class to keep their NY State pistol license or to apply for the first time. All classes are taught by a Certified NRA Instructor. Students will receive the NRA Basic Pistol Course as part of this course. Discounted NRA memberships are also available upon request.The range portion of the class can be taught at an indoor range, on site, we will be setting up an indoor Ultimate Training Munitions (UTM) range. The UTM guns are real Glock 17 handguns that fire a 9mm marking round. These guns can be used for the live fire portion of the class and the huge benefit is that we do not need to utilize a gun range for class. These are a safe training option which NY State law allows to use during the class for the required live fire portion of the class.Our class will not only give students the required training certificate needed to apply to NY State for a concealed carry license, but will also include the required training certificates to apply to Florida, Arizona and Utah.No firearm required by attendees. Ammo and holster will be provided. Students should have a sturdy 2 inch leather belt. It is recommended that eye and ear protection is brought by each student, but can they be borrowed if needed with advanced notice from the training center for no extra cost.
