Original Certification and Renewal Classes:


The New York State Department of Health Bureau of Emergency Medical Services authorizes training for pre-hospital certification through Course Sponsors.  All Course Sponsors can offer BLS education (i.e. CFR, EMT-B).  A smaller number of Course Sponsors have been approved to provide ALS education (i.e. AEMT, Paramedic).  Once a course is completed, a student must successfully complete the NYS practical and written exams.
