I took the recertification course this November in East Hartford. The instructors were fabulous, knew their craft and presented in a professional manner and left all of us taking the course at ease. And I passed.

The EMT Refresher program at Code One meets the NREMT and CT OEMS requirements to renew EMT certification. This 30 hour course updates providers with the newest recognized standards and skills.

Participants may complete a refresher in American Heart Association BLS (CPR/AED) for Healthcare Providers as part of this program (although participants that have recently renewed their CPR certification are not required to attend this portion of the course). Additional topics covered include Safety and Wellbeing of the EMT, Scene Size-Up, Airway Management, Patient Assessment, Medical Emergencies, Trauma Emergencies, Immobilization, OB/GYN/Pediatric Emergencies, and the newly required Transitions program. Skills practiced include airway management, trauma patient assessment, medical patient assessment, spinal immobilization, splinting, and cardiac arrest management.

Upon completion of course topics, participants will test for renewal of EMT certification. The refresher examination is conducted by CT OEMS in class.

Participants must be currently certified as an EMT in Connecticut or be seeking Connecticut EMT certification through reciprocity. This course is also recommended as a review course for individuals that are preparing for NREMT testing or have failed the NREMT written examination three times and are seeking to obtain additional examination attempts.

Participants must be in good health and able to perform the skills required for EMT certification renewal.

Connecticut OEMS requires participants submit a passport style photo with their renewal application.  Please bring a passport style photo of yourself to the first night of class.

This course includes all necessary books and materials including:

  • Code One EMS Refresher Student Manual
  • Pocket Mask
  • American Heart Association BLS (CPR/AED) for Healthcare Providers 2 year certification

Additional review materials may be ordered during course registration.

Upon completion of the EMT Refresher training program including classroom skills practice and testing, participants will take the Connecticut EMT written examination which is proctored during the scheduled course hours. The scoring of a 70% or higher on this examination will result in successful course completion and renewal of the EMT certification in Connecticut, if applicable.

Participants seeking NREMT certification will need to submit 48 additional hours of continuing education hours OR complete NREMT psychomotor (practical) and cognitive (written) testing separate from the state testing conducted during this class.
