The practical examination is a six station skills test that is conducted Wednesday evenings at Code One’s East Hartford center. This examination is administered by the State of Connecticut Office of Emergency Medical Services. Candidates will rotate through all stations performing medical and trauma assessments, extremity and spinal immobilization, CPR/AED, and airway management. Participants must pass all six stations to complete the practical examination and may repeat stations unlimited times within three years of course completion until all stations are passed (however, each station may only be attempted once per exam). Code One students use the same equipment in class that they will eventually be tested on and are required to be patients at a practical examination during their course.

 

The written exam is administered by appointment at any Pearson Vue Testing Centers. This computer based test arrives at a pass/fail result based upon the candidate’s ability to answer a varying number of questions derived from the EMT competency areas.
