Next month, the St. Lawrence County Basic Original and Basic Refresher EMT courses will be offered at Clarkson University’s Clarkson Hall, located at 59 Main Street in Potsdam and home to the Lewis School of Health Sciences. Due to COVID-19, parts of this class may be held virtually depending on enrollment and campus status.
The Basic Refresher course starts on January 9, 2021 with a written challenge exam held at Potsdam Rescue (29 Elm Street, Potsdam) and a practical skills challenge exam on January 11 at Potsdam Rescue. Both courses begin instruction on Wednesday, January 13. Classes will be held from 6:30pm to 9:30pm Mondays and Wednesdays through May 20, 2021. There will be some Saturday sessions as well. In addition to class time, students will be required to complete a minimum of 10 hours of ride time on an ambulance, as well as reading and homework assignments outside of class.
