    Got my call yesterday as well. Anyone have information on what the academy is like? I've heard it's between 10-12 weeks.

    I've heard besides re-certifying as an EMT, we go through HazMat and driver training. Any other info on this? What is the physical training like?

    Also, I've been reviewing my materials from my EMT class and some of the NY state exams. Understanding that we are all already EMTs, what are expectations of instructors going into the academy?

    Any info would be great.

    The Academy is around 12 weeks, you should finish us sometime in April. The first part of the program is re-certifying your EMT. Then you will get into scenarios which are acting you an actual call and operations...how to use the radio etc... HAZMAT is 4 days 2 days which are at the rock where you will use your APR mask. You will also do EVOC which is about a week, best part of the academy if you ask me. There is also a few ambulance rotations thrown in. Don't worry about Physical training, if your in shape you will have no problem. You will run everyday about a mile and do high reps with low weight (two 10 pound dumb bells), push ups, sit ups. The expectations of the instructors are quite low as most people who come into the academy have there EMT but have never stepped inside an ambulance. Most people just got there EMT to be Fireman anyway. You will learn way more in the Academy then you ever did in your EMT class. Show up on time and study and you will be fine.

    The EMS academy was a lot of fun. Know when to shut up and be humble, do what they say, and have fun with your classmates. I agree about EVOC, I had a blast.

    If not...do they issue the boots when you start the actual work??

    If I remember right I think you have to have your own at first, but they do issue you boots. They will tell you on day 1 at HQ.

    If they need to they will keep calling people up with job offers right up until late on the Friday night before the slated start date. Happened to a guy in my PTOP.

    Yes you will be tested at portions throughout the course, as well as an in class final. I believe it's possible to fail out, but really... if you made it this far you should be okay. Even if you have trouble the most important thing is to show heart. If they see you trying they will work with you a lot more than if you show up with an attitude and then do poorly.

    They're fine with you going to medic school. Scheduling is done by the commanding officer of your station, and is based on the needs of the station and your seniority. They will work with you to the extent that they can, but it can be difficult when new.
