How to Become an EMT

The first step is to read the information provided on our Join Us tab, then take an EMT class.

The EMT class is an approximately 100-hour course that provides knowledge and skills necessary to care for the sick and injured in a prehospital setting. Topics include the recognition and treatment of respiratory and circulatory emergencies, trauma, medical emergencies, environmental injuries, emergency childbirth, and psychological emergencies. When you successfully complete the course, you are eligible to take the New York State certification exam.
