All I have to say is it is intense, a test everyday, cleaning uniform and boots everyday, and I'm having pt training everyday for now. Get ready everyone.

@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.
You in one of the current classes? At least you’re getting paid for it, I wish i would have come in as an emt years ago and upgraded. I did it on the outside and came in as a ptop.

Does anyone on the job know about vacation in your first year? Do we get it during our first year or once we have completed one year? I know we’ll be at the bottom of the totem pole but is it hard to get off for more then a day or 2? Have a wedding In florida 2 months after academy would end. Not a big deal if i cant go just want to respond correctly

I graduated in June and thank god we got paid lol. But the **** is grueling and every test a prayer not to fail. your hair goes grey in the Med Class. Glad I made it out with my Patch.
I was going to do it on the outside but my friend said just wait and do it thru FDNY. glad I did.

Just finished my medical/psych. Very long process walked out around 2pm. Exam 8009. There is speculation that the February class is going to be half trainee/EMT can anyone confirm? I also heard after February the class after will be in June. Looking forward to the academy!! Anyone who’s been in the process should I email my investigator and let him know I finished the MED/psych and if there is anything he needs from me? I don’t think it would hurt to send me a email

Trust me they know and if you don't hear from them thats good news. Investigators are not only for you but they have a pile they are looking at. If they need something from you or you are missing documents they will contact you.
Give you a heads up and just stay outta trouble, and wait. Only contact them if your job has changed or traffic infractions or trouble. if you don't it can get you DQd.

Good luck

Hello everyone just a super quick question to ask. If I were to score a 80 on the emt exam what range will my list number be and how long will that take?

Just received my Lab results in the mail. It says that the results were found to be in acceptable limits. Which is good correct?

I heard that the academy ends on the 29th of January... can anyone verify ?
The academy ends January 31st which is our graduation practice but that's for alpha company( already emts). We go out into the streets as we wait for bravo(trainees) to graduate. Then we both graduate February 19th

Ems Trainee 9075 candidate here lol, so what is the medical process like? I work out a lot and do a lot of boxing 5”11 and 240lbs obviously I plan on shredding that down but would that dq me medically ? Any trainees who passed the academy care to clarify how the academy is for the trainees? And someone explain how the medical is? Is it lenient or are they tough on the weight process ? Still waiting for my list number lol I know I got a 79 Cause of my bachelors. Any info would help and yeah I tried scrolling through 500 pages to find info but it’s a lot so any help would be awesome. I was hired as a fire alarm dispatcher recently, I’m guessing do I have to do my background check over again ? Like send all the files in or they’ll refer to my old file ?
