In response to the COVID-19 pandemic, Code One has migrated EMT program lectures to an online platform and implemented small groups which meet in-person for skills practice.  Live online lectures allow EMT students to meet and interact with their instructors in realtime, just as they would in the classroom.  Small group skills practice ensures students are able to master the skills required to become a proficient EMT in a COVID responsible environment.

Code One’s 180 hour Accelerated Connecticut / National Registry EMT (Emergency Medical Technician) program prepares participants to respond to medical emergencies in just 5 weeks. 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 covers 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 20 hours of clinical observation time in a variety of settings including onboard ambulances and in hospital emergency departments. 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.

Code One’s success is proven – our student pass rates exceed national and state averages and many of our graduates work and volunteer for many EMS services throughout the country including as firefighters, police officers, military, and federal agents. Many Code One grads have continued their education and are now paramedics and nurses.

  • Students must be 16 years of age or older by the end of the course to become certified as an EMT by the State of Connecticut and National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
  • Students convicted of a felony may not be eligible for certification as an Emergency Medical Technician. 
  • Students must maintain a score of 75% or higher in this course to sit for the course final written and practical skills exams.  Participants with less than 75% averages during the program will be counseled by their instructor and may be dismissed from the course if their average remains below 75%.
  • Students who successfully complete both testing phases will be eligible to test for National Registry written and practical examinations for EMT certification.
  • Participants must be in good health and able to perform the physical duties of an EMT.  Some 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. Any specific requirements for clinical sites will be presented on the first day of class and due by the midterm.
