Ems Trainee 9075 candidate here lol, so what is the medical process like? I work out a lot and do a lot of boxing 5”11 and 240lbs obviously I plan on shredding that down but would that dq me medically ? Any trainees who passed the academy care to clarify how the academy is for the trainees? And someone explain how the medical is? Is it lenient or are they tough on the weight process ? Still waiting for my list number lol I know I got a 79 Cause of my bachelors. Any info would help and yeah I tried scrolling through 500 pages to find info but it’s a lot so any help would be awesome. I was hired as a fire alarm dispatcher recently, I’m guessing do I have to do my background check over again ? Like send all the files in or they’ll refer to my old file ?
if your BMI is over the entry level and weight also a problem you can be DQd and given time {Not to much, so start getting it off now} If I remember correctly 30 days. they are tough on the weight.
all jobs especially recent must be included for your investigator. any trouble, tickets, arrest records revealed to your investigator. THEY WILL FIND OUT if you withhold any pertinent information.

Good luck

Can someone clarify this? I heard that FDNY will no longer have summer classes that goes for academies and refreshers due to something with the fiscal year. Is this true? I was told that there was going to be a June class this year.

Yes a lot of the candidates who mailed the affirmation letters in on time and applied for the trainee 9075 position, list numbers prob won’t be mailed till March and the PAT won’t start till July willing to bet or maybe June. Academy for this exam and emt exam is suppose to start in September.

Most likely get away with 210lbs at your height, but if I were you I would just go down to 200. It will be easier on your knees too when u do pt. Not much advice can be given for academy, just stay fit and pass your tests.

From what I remember it's more about BMI. They is a certain percentage you need to be under. Don't remember what it is this though. If you need a right measure get below 30%
