Candidates do not need to hold a current certification card in order to enroll in a refresher course. However, they must have proof that they were once certified in the State of New York at or above the level of the refresher course in which, they are enrolling in. No candidate will be allowed to enroll in a refresher course unless they have been previously or are currently certified. Occasionally, NYS-BEMS will grant a candidate permission to enroll in a refresher course based upon previous training in another state. The student must submit a letter from NYS-BEMS to the CIC for proof of eligibility and any advanced standing that has been granted.

Candidates with a “Lapsed Certification” pursuant to Section 800.8 State EMS Code: all CFR/EMT certifications will expire at 12 midnight on the expiration date shown on the certification card. After that time the individual is no longer certified. The candidate may NOT practice as a NYS certified provider. Pursuant to Section 800.18 State EMS Code, at any time in the future, an individual may enroll in a refresher program and complete the course requirements. They must take and pass both the State certifying Practical Skills Examination and the State certifying written examination in order to renew their certification. These candidates are eligible to take all portions of the challenge components of the refresher course.

If the candidate fails the State Written Certification Examination he/she may retest once, either at the level originally sought or at a lower level of certification. The first and second attempts to pass the Written Certification Examination must be completed within one year of passing the course’s Final Practical Skills Examination. If after the second examination the student fails, he/she may enroll in an original or refresher course. If the student wishes to enroll in a refresher course, he/she must do so within one year of the date of the course completion.
