Emergency Medical Technician

As we continue to grapple with the effects of COVID-19, the need for frontline workers such as Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs)  has never been greater. Deemed an essential service by the state, we have adapted our EMT training to a hybrid format working in collaboration with Recue Training International.  This will ensure the safety of our students and instructors as we minimize contact through online delivery of the theoretical component. Students will then complete the practical skills in-person, with no more than 8 people in a classroom to be in compliance with social distancing rules. Students will utilize Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for each pratical skills session. 
Once registered, students will be informed of textbook pick-up location prior to the start of class, or mail delivery of the textbook (if possible with sufficient lead time). 

EMT Original

EMTs face the unknown every day, dealing with 911 calls that involve a wide range of emergencies.  In the EMT-Original program, you will learn the fundamental skills to assess a patient’s condition, apply the proper procedure for emergency care, and, when necessary, transport the patient to a medical facility. Learn these life-saving techniques and join the dedicated personnel on the frontlines to keep New Yorkers safe.
