This 5 week course prepares students to respond to all types of medical emergencies. Upon successful completion of the course students will have a solid foundation and understanding of anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, and medical technology. Our comprehensive program combines interactive lectures, hands-on practical training, and observation time at St. Francis Hospital & Medical Center’s Emergency Department, along with ride time onboard our ambulances with our highly skilled EMT’s and paramedics.
This course is designed to meet both the State of Ct., Dept. of Public Health and the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT.org) national standards curriculum. Successful completion of this course will allow students the opportunity to take the cognitive and psychomotor skills examinations for both Connecticut and National Registry certification.
