Training Division

The American Heart Association (AHA) recognizes NewYork-Presbyterian as a Community Training Center. Our Emergency Medical Services is one of the largest training centers in New York State. We provide regularly scheduled Basic Cardiac Life Support, Advanced Cardiac Life Support, Pediatric Advanced Life Support, and other specialized training programs to our hospital staff and volunteers, corporations, and community organizations. Our instructors are certified by the AHA, New York State Department of Health, The National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians(NAEMT), and the Regional Emergency Medical Services Council of New York City.
