New Educational Standards took effect in New York State September 2012.  All refresher students will be required to complete a transition program and use a transition textbook to update to the new NYS and national EMS educational standards.

 

Prerequisite for All Courses

 All courses require completion of IS-100b, IS-700a and IS-5a or equivalent.  You must submit certificates of completion for each by the second week of class to remain in the course.  Courses are on line at www.saratogaems.org/EMS_Students.htm

 

 Important Course Information

Preference is given to residents of Saratoga County who are Ambulance Corps or Fire Department members, followed by other EMS providers.  Students must bring payment for textbooks (or department voucher), course tuition or proof of agency membership, and a valid CPR card (BLS or Professional Rescuer) to first night of class.  Refresher students should also bring a copy of their EMT card. Proof of agency membership (DOH-3312) forms are at www.saratogaems.org/Downloads/DOH3312.pdf.   Instructor may limit total students to 4 per agency.  All students must bring their own pocket mask to class. Please note: any person who has previously held the same NYS certification or higher level than the course they enroll in must enroll in a refresher course. Students with previous NYS certification who enroll in original courses might be ineligible to sit for the NYS exam.  Contact the Course Instructor or Administrator if you are unsure of your eligibility.  The County EMS Council Course Administrator is Mike McEvoy (office # 383-8608).
