The EMS Safety Professional Rescuer program has been approved by CECBEMS (Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services)

Training is consistent with the 2010 American Heart Association CPR and ECC Guidelines and the International First Aid Science Advisory Board.


GOTHAM EMS training programs have been reviewed and approved by numerous federal, state, local and private organizations. See below for a list of some of our approvals. At Gotham EMS we are always seeking out new agencies to review our programs. 

The Approval Process: Some state agencies approve CPR, AED, and First Aid programs for specific uses, such as childcare providers or dentists. Other states mandate what program elements are required and do not have a formal approval process. We can help you check the regulations and determine if an approval process exists for your need.

A Word on OSHA: The Federal Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) does not approve programs.Gotham EMS &  EMS Safety's CPR, First Aid and Bloodborne Pathogens training programs are OSHA-compliant and meet the regulations. For more information on what is required by OSHA, visit their website at www.osha.gov, or click on the link for Bloodborne Pathogens requirements and first aid requirements.
