Anyone wanting to become an EMT in New York will be regulated by the New York Department of Health. We walk you through how to get on the path to certification and much more below!

What does a New York Emergency Medical Technician do?

Looking after the sick and injured is a broad description of the EMT and Paramedic’s job responsibilities. Here are details of the EMT job duties.

What is the process to become an Emergency Medical Technician in New York?

Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs) and Paramedics in New York are required to graduate from a postsecondary educational course. New York requires that all EMTs and Paramedics in the state be professionally licensed. The following five steps are necessary in order to become an EMT in every state.

Step 1: Complete high school or get your G.E.D.

Furthermore, all Emergency Medical Technician training programs require students to be high school graduates or G.E.D. holders as part of their admissions requirements. Put in the time to complete this first step, and you’ll prevent a large number of road blocks during your career.

Step 2: Complete a NY EMT training class

To become eligible to sit for for certification, you’ll need to first complete a state-accredited EMT program. Prior to taking the examination, you must give evidence of graduation from a program in the last two years, and have to additionally be placed on the National Registry (read below). Junior colleges, technical colleges, hospitals and universities all feature Emergency Medical Technician training classes. It’s also possible to take them at firemen and police training academies.

How long is EMT School in NY?

One should plan on spending at least two to six months in class to become an EMT in the Empire State.

Step 3: Earn a CPR-BLS credential

Along with completing your EMT training program, you must also become CPR-BLS credentialed prior to taking your certification examination. In order to be recognized, a certification course has to be endorsed by the American Heart Association. The American Red Cross is among the world’s most well-known providers of training programs.

Step 4: Pass the National Registry’s EMT Cognitive and Psychomotor exams

The EMTs certification assessment consists of a general knowledge section (the Cognitive Exam) and a skills demonstration segment (the Psychomotor Exam). The Cognitive Exam is administered in an online, multiple-choice style, whereas the Psychomotor Exam is offered at a physical site under the observation of an evaluator. The two sections of the National Registry EMT Exam are looked at in more detail below.

Click here to see a detailed explanation of the EMT licensing exams.

Step 5: Have your name added to the National EMT Registry

After graduating from EMT training, all students will have to get included on the National Emergency Medical Technician Registry within 30 days of getting certified. A fee of $80 has to be paid so that you can have your name included on the registry. Getting your name added to this list is the last step required to be eligible for hire as an Emergency Medical Technician.
