WHY: LaGuardia Community College has been providing Emergency Medical Services (EMS) training since 1987. Its high-quality training has resulted in superb pass rates on the  NY State Department of Health and NYC Regional Emergency Medical Advisory Committee (NYC REMAC) paramedic certification exams. 

LaGuardia’s EMT program has graduated over 6,300 students to date, with a 97% pass rate on the NY State certification exam.  

In addition, LaGuardia is an authorized training center for the Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS), Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS), and Psychological Trauma in EMS Patients (PTEP) courses of the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT).

PTEP was developed by a team led by Christine Alvarez, who oversees EMS training at LaGuardia as director of prehospital care programs, to equip first-responders with tools and techniques to address a patient’s psychological distress during a medical emergency. PTEP has been implemented throughout the U.S. and beyond, and adopted by NAEMT as a continuing ed course available for both certification and credit. Funding from the U.S. Department of Labor supported its development.
