Hello everyone new to this forum. I’m taking the EMT exam is Saturday Exam#9075. How long does the process take. Thank you.[/QUOTE

Between 1 1/2 and 2 Years Possibly longer based on which academy you are called to start, they have multiple throughout the duration of the eligible list, lower list numbers who handled all paper work gets contacted first of course

I have another question, how long do you have to be an EMT before becoming a Paramedic and does the FDNY do the training for Paramedics? Thanks!

Had my interview at the end of September list number 10xx exam 8009 and now I'm waiting for my medical letter. Has anyone received their medical letter?

Yes, you need to be an EMT before you’re a medic. There is an internal promotion to paramedic within the department. After you finish the academy, when DCAS posts the filing for the upgrade, you sign up for that. Then there is an internal entry exam (basic math, protocol stuff) given by the academy. A list is established based off those scores. It’s a 9 month pretty intense training, according to those who’ve done it.

I apologize if this has been asked previously, I tried to find the answer myself but was unsuccessful.

Recently took the 9014 exam for EMT (Fire) in September and was wondering when those exam results would be posted, or at least a ballpark time frame.

List numbers usually come out around like March? Somewhere round there

Thanks for the reply. I am anticipating the 70, maybe a 75 from volunteer work. How fast are they gonna try to get through this list? Seeing as they are offering a training program for EMTs, it seems as though the department is looking for a lot of people.

@Mikef19 is correct 100%
Oh Yeah 9 months of intense and make sure you study, study and STUDY some more, 3 exam fails and you are out regardless if you only have 1 or 2 months left. you can come back again, but why would anyone want to subject to all that, when if you apply yourself. and study as if your life depends on it.
it is a no nonsense 9 months but so worth it in the end.
