NYS AEMT Rapid Refresher

What is a “Rapid Refresher”? The NYS DOH Rapid Refresher Course allows a currently certified NYS ALS Provider, who is in certification and clinically active/competent, to take the NYS PSE & written recertification exams without having to complete a full refresher course.

Who is eligible? This is determined solely by the Agency Medical Director and is based on, but not limited to, direct clinical observation, evaluation of performance and CME (continuing medical education). If the Agency Medical Director affirms that the applicant is clinically competent and qualified to continue practicing, the ALS provider can apply for admission to a Rapid Refresher.
