If I knew the one starting sunday would be online for the whole course I wouldn't hesitate to sign up.
no class can be totally online since skills have to be done in person

Right, but I spoke to Joe and as of now all Lectures are online which means you would only need to come in for Skills classes.

I teach there so I am a bit biased, but I think we have a really good program.

Is Fred still there? I had Ovadia but Fred filled in a few times.
Moishe was learning to be a CIC on my class, I believe he is now giving classes.

Anyone ever use this place? i've been searching forever for a self paced online program where you dont have to fly half way across the country to do a skills week. this place does the skills portion via webcam in 2 hour increments. the only drawback is its 3k... Anyone know of a scholarships or any other ideas?

Where are you located that you cannot get an in person class?

NREMT is not accepted in all states and you will still need state certification to practice anywhere. Some will grant you reciprocity based on NREMT certification and some will require you to take a test based on their state standards.

If you have done online classes and feel like it is something you can commit to and learn from. Then that takes care of the didactic portion. For the skills side, even with them sending you all the equipment. I wonder how well you will be able to learn and be proficient in them all on your own. You can watch youtube videos from today till next year, but there is nothing like seeing/feeling it in person.

All that being said, it could work for you and depending what you plan on doing with the cert could pay off. I made back the money I paid for EMT and Medic school in spades in the first year after school alone.

If you need help throughout the course feel free to reach out.

Thanks for the feedback! I 100% agree that doing skills in person is way better than online but doing a full course in a classroom just doesnít fit with my schedule. I tried organizing doing the didactic portion online and doing a one-week skills week with a group of 10 people but ended up being too costly. Next, I tried looking for an organization that offered doing the skills week in either New Jersey or New York which I couldnít find any. So now Iím left with a ďgroupĒ of 3.
For the record Iím based in lakewood

Skills can't be done in a week, they count towards the overall class hours. And you are required to have a certain number of hours total to meet state requirements.

it all depends on how many hours a day you spend doing the skills

Anywhere in NY I can take the refresher course completely online due to the Covid-19?
How are they administering the state exams now?

Skills will always be in person. The rest is online these days.

As for tests NYS moved to a computer based testing administered by a private company. You schedule an exam with them and pay a fee.

Is the online scheduled zoom meetings or you can do it at your own convenience?
How many in person skills classes are needed to renew?

Do you know if the NYS test is easier or harder than the original? Is the amount of time the same?
