Emergency Medical Services Education

Do you want to become an Emergency Medical Technician?

The Orange County Division of EMS offers both original and refresher courses for the NYS Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) Certification. Classes are a combination of in person, and self-directed learning.

All applications must be submitted no later than five (5) days prior to the first day of class and accompanied by a $50.00 non-refundable registration fee.  The registration fee must be a separate payment. Full payment of tuition fees is due on the first day of class. Registration and tuition fees can be made by personal check, certified check, or money order and should be made payable to the Orange County Commissioner of Finance. Cash payments will not be accepted.

All applicants are responsible for payment as the Orange County Division of EMS no longer accepts state reimbursements for the EMT Basic Original or Refresher courses. Eligible students may apply to the NYS DOH Bureau of EMS for reimbursement when they have passed the Course.
