EMT course availability- Exactly what you need to know in order to be an EMT in New York.
New York EMT and Paramedics must complete and pass a State Sponsored EMS Course and examination process. New York does not rely on the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians Exam that many of the states in the USA are moving to. Additionally the state of New York will not grant a license and certification based on National Licensure alone. Reciprocity is for EMTs and Paramedics who are licensed and certified by another state only. Those EMS personnel with only NREMT certification must apply for and take a New York EMT refresher course.
The New York EMT and Paramedic exam covers the exact same material as the NREMT exam with exception to some changes in local protocols. Utilization of NREMT study based materials will convey the same knowledge base as the state specific examination. Test material are very heavy in the basics of airway and CPR as well as trauma and medical assessment.
