EMT Refresher Programs at St. John's University

St. John's University is a Catholic university founded in 1870. The school offers EMT and EMT- Paramedic Challenge Refresher programs through its Emergency Medical Services (EMS) Institute, part of the College of Pharmacy and Health Sciences. Refresher programs use new materials in line with the National EMS Educational Standards. Students must have CPR certification to enroll. Both programs prepare students for the practical and written exams of New York State (NYS).

EMT Challenge Refresher Program

This program has five 3.5-hour required sessions that cover transition topics (new skills that are part of the new educational materials). Students in the refresher program must take Federal Emergency Management Agency (FEMA) online introductory courses in incident command system, hazardous materials introduction and the national incident management system (NIMS)

Paramedic Challenger Refresher Program

This program includes six sessions, each lasting 3.5 hours, that cover the new advanced life support (ALS) skills for paramedics. Students are also required to take the same FEMA courses as in the EMT refresher program. When taking the refresher program, a student must test his or her skills to establish that they measure up to the standards of the National Registry.

EMT Refresher Courses at CUNY LaGuardia Community College

LaGuardia offers its refresher courses as continuing education classes. For both the EMT and paramedic refresher courses, challenge exams are given to determine the area that the student should focus on as they work to refresh their skills.

Students enrolled in this course review material that they previously learned and update themselves on policy and protocol changes. Students only attend sessions as determined by the challenge exams. Upon completing all requirements of the refresher course, the student sits for the EMT-B certification exams for NYS.

To apply for this course, the applicant needs to have a NYS paramedic card, a copy of which is submitted with the application. If a student is a member of a New York State EMS agency, they do not have to pay tuition.
