  • Program Highlights:

    This two-year NYSED Approved CTE Program provides students the opportunity to develop knowledge and skills in fire protection technology, fire safety, emergency medical care, and radio dispatch. Students explore these professions through a variety of guest lecturers and site visitations. In the first year, students earn CPR certification and take the NYS Certified First Responder certification exam.  The purpose of the second-year course is to prepare students to participate in an extensive field internship and take the NYS EMT-Basic (EMT-B) certification exam.

    Students taking this program are strongly encouraged to get the COVID-19 vaccine. It is not required at this time. However, not being vaccinated may impact our ability to place students on internship.

    In order for EMCC to be able to offer the EMT-B training program, we are required to have a course sponsor. Our course sponsor is Monroe Community College (MCC). In accordance with MCC course policies, in order to be eligible to participate in an internship and sit for the NYS EMT-B certification exam, students must:
