Code One’s 42 hour Emergency Medical Technician for Healthcare Providers course transitions clinical professionals into the role of an emergency responder. EMTs respond to emergency 911 calls, assess ill and injured individuals, administer life saving interventions, and transport patients to hospital Emergency Departments aboard ambulances for further treatment. This exciting and demanding course reviews human anatomy and physiology, treatment of sick and injured individuals, and transportation of these patients to the hospital.

Our course curriculum involves interactive lectures, hands-on practical training, and 12 hours of clinical observation time with a 911 EMS service. Code One’s instructors are experienced EMS professionals that bring real-world situations into the classroom. A blend of hands-on practice and interactive lectures prepare Code One EMT students for certification testing and to work as an EMS provider.

Participants must be currently licensed in Connecticut as a Registered Nurse, Advanced Practice Registered Nurse, Physician Assistant, or Physician. The participant’s license must not lapse during the program as this is a requirement for EMS certification.

Other professionals, including those that are not currently licensed or licensed outside of CT, are welcome to attend this program, however, they will not be able to receive state and national certification if not licensed by the State of Connecticut in the aforementioned roles.

Students convicted of a felony may not be eligible for certification as an Emergency Medical Technician.

Students that successfully complete this program will be eligible for National Registry written and practical examinations for EMT certification. NREMT certification may be utilized to obtain licensure in other states.

Participants must be in good health and able to perform the physical duties of an EMT.  Some of clinical sites require students to provide a certification of health signed by a physician, a negative Tuberculin Skin Test or Chest X-Ray within 1 year prior to the start of clinical, and a history of vaccinations. The specific requirements for clinical sites are presented on the first day of class.

This course includes all necessary books and materials including:

  • Emergency Medical Technician Refresher Student Manual
  • American Heart Association BLS (CPR/AED) for Healthcare Providers 2 year certification
  • Pocket mask
  • Code One T-Shirt for clinical rotations (navy pants and dark boots are required as well and are not provided)

Upon completion of the EMT training program, participants must successfully complete National Registry of EMTs psychomotor (practical) and cognitive (written) testing.

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.

Once both examinations are completed, participants will be issued registration from the National Registry of EMTs and certification from the CT Department of Public Health.
