Emergency Medical Technician Course
We are proud that our state-approved Emergency Medical Technician courses have some of the highest pass rates in the states of Connecticut and Rhode Island. We pride ourselves on providing comprehensive training and a challenging class for our students to best prepare them for working in the field. Our 188-hour course emphasizes the assessment and treatment of medical and trauma patients. This course is geared towards students with little or no background in Emergency Medical Services. The course includes lectures, practical laboratory stations and ambulance ride time (ambulance ride time is scheduled outside of class time). After successful completion of this course, students will be eligible to sit for the National Registry examination.
Students must be a minimum of 16 years old. For under 18, please call us to register. 860-383-1346
Students need to have current physicals and a current PPD. Students are strongly encouraged to have a laptop, tablet, or other computer (not a phone) with reliable Internet access to complete homework and other class assignments. We do have limited availability in our computer lab, but it is much more convenient for the student to have the resources available to them outside of the classroom.
The following training courses must be completed prior to the start of class and documentation of completion provided to the school:
- IS-100.c Introduction to the Incident Command System ICS-100
- IS-200.c Basic Incident Command System for Initial Response
- IS-700.b An Introduction to the National Incident Management System
