I have had the privilege of attending the ECP EMT course in Staten Island in 2014. It took 4-5 months of intense studying and testing to complete the course. The instructor, Louis Cazetta, is a no-nonsense brutally honest veteran in EMS. He guided us through the process of becoming capable EMTs.
After getting certified in December I went on to work at SeniorCare EMS. For those who think transport work is only non-emergent, boring, or routine, it is far from that. A few times a week I am responding to “Code 1” emergencies going lights and sirens to emergency calls from nursing or assisted living facilities ranging from chest pain, seizures, falls, psych, and abusive situations.
I have also gotten flagged down on the street for multiple car accidents and have been called upon to do CPR just because we happened to be at the right place at the right time. All in all ECP was where I began my education and has led to towards to a fulfilling career in EMS. I highly recommend ECP to anyone looking to get EMT certified.
