There is a challenge EMT Recert course built into every recertification course.  Anyone who has ever been NYS Certified can challenge regardless of how long your card has been expired.  The challenge written examination will be administered at the first session.  The instructor will inform you how to proceed to challenge the NYS Practical Exam.

I understand that:

  1. Successful completion of the course requires attendance at all sessions and achievement of a passing grade.
  2. Purchasing the course textbook is my responsibility.  The approximate cost of the textbook is $100.00.
  3. EMS work is strenuous.  The EMT course will require me to physically exert myself.  I will consult my physician if I have any doubts about my ability to perform these tasks.

Emergency Medical Services Providers active on EMS units or employees of municipal EMS services are entitled to take tuition free courses.  It is the responsibility of the student to provide the completed NYS Verification of Membership Form as proof of participation in an agency with a NYS EMS Agency Code.  (Verification of Membership Forms will be available from the Instructor/Coordinator).  Those students who do not provide Verification of Membership will be billed tuition for the training course.  Failure to pay the tuition will result in dismissal from the course.

Upon receipt of this application by the EMS office, the student will be notified ONLY if there are changes in scheduling or the enrollment is closed.  PLEASE BRING YOUR EMT CARD TO THE FIRST CLASS.
