      Depends on how many they need to get through. I had my medical back in February, didn't get my poly until the end of July.

        • Hey just wondering if anybody on this thread is in the academy right now. Just wondering how it is and what it's like there

          Comment


          • The current academy is just finishing EMS training and is about to start suppression school. The academy is deifferent than years past with a new basic training staff. They do PT 5 days a week. As long as you are in decent shape you will be fine.

            • Ok thanks and another quick question if you have ur national registry EMT can u pretty much skip the EMS portion and not have to test

              Comment


              • Nope, you still have to take all of the exams and pass everything. You will not sit for the national registry test obviously.
