Would you happen to know who confirmed a February class?
When I was doing my intake back in July they told us they r hiring for October and January
Is anyone else doing both picture day and uniform fitting tomorrow as well? For those of you that have gone to picture day already... I’ve read it takes about 4 hours .. is that so?
Edit: never mind
Hello everyone new to this forum. I’m taking the EMT exam is Saturday Exam#9075. How long does the process take. Thank you.
Thank you so much.
I’m taking my Civil Exam tomorrow EMS Trainee.#9075 Wish me luck, don’t know what to expect.
The trainee “exam” is just the application it’s not an actual test.
Wait so it’s just an application? I thought it was an exam.
Thank you for letting me know. I actually filled out the application online when I paid. I feel silly. Thank you!
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!
Anybody in the academy now know what the highest list number they got up to? And on which exam?
Does anyone know what list number they are up to from the exam 8009
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.
