    Look into getting EMT reciprocity anyway, but wait until you take the test and see where you're at. I think it lasts 3 years, so if you're not hired in that time, it'll expire. Anyway, it'll save you the ridiculous fee for CFR-D, which they deduct from your pay. You'll still sit through the class and act at that level, just won't have to pay for it.

    New York State doesn't offer reciprocity

    First post and you're wrong. Batting 1.000 already.

    My suggestion is if your current EMT is due to expire soon and don't need it right away, wait to do the reciprocity. Or else it will be granted only until when your current one expires. Then you'll have to take a refresher course to keep it current with NYS.

    I was poking around the Red Cross website looking for info on CFR-D courses but didn't see anything. Is there some where else I should be looking?

    Red cross doesnt give it. Go to the NYS DOH website. It should have a list of where all the CFR and EMT courses are being held. Also, no matter what level of EMT you are at you will have to get certified as a NYS CFR anyway. Im a paramedic and will have to get my CFR.

    Thanks for the info, I'm going to check out the NYS site. As of now I don't have any certs but it's worth looking in to seeing whether it's a lot cheaper to get the CFR-D on your own time vs paying for it in probie school.

    So it looks like with as many people as are applying, the 5 extra points you get for residency in New York are going to be pretty tough to overcome for out of towners?

    Dirty Axe I'm in the same boat- I moved to the city 6 months ago, figuring that would be more than enough time. Needless to say it wasn't...

    All we can hope for is that this will lower the amount of people who lie about their residency and level the playing playing field for the people who don't want to cheat the system.

    Remember, not everyone with the extra 5 points will score a 105 on the test- just make sure you shoot for 100 and nothing less.

    this exam will be no different than the past exams regarding how well you need to score. Shoot for 100 & still expect to not be in the first class.

    I always forget this. Thanks for reminding me. It was a blow to my confidence knowing I couldnt get the points but we have to keep our heads up.

    Who even knows what this next exam will look like. Prior exams had well over 100 Q's, so you could miss a couple here and there. Not to say that the material will be more challenging on this exam but the margin for error decreases if there aren't as many Q's.

    25 points for spelling your name correctly, 25 points for identifying your left and right, 25 points for knowing the color of fire, and 25 points for knowing how to dress yourself......EXTRA CREDIT is being able to describe what a ladder is for!

    I had been studying the ARCO books and the prep books provided by the FDNY.

    But we really have no idea what is going to be on this test now. We will just have to wait and see. I have heard that the job will provide test materials and classes when the time comes.
