On October 15, 2018 OEMS will eliminate the seated spinal immobilization (KED) station. Only five (5) stations will be tested for exams after this date. The Bleeding Control / Shock station has been added as a potential assignment in the random skill station. Repeat testing (retests) is available for candidates that have failed two (2) stations after October 15 or failed two (2) or three (3) stations prior to October 15. Candidates needing a three station repeat exam will need to register by phone at 860.786.1789 ext 110.
Candidates that have failed two (2) stations at a previous practical exam may repeat their failed stations during another exam date. Candidates repeating the Random station may not necessarily repeat the same station that they originally failed. Random may consist of one joint immobilization, long bone immobilization, or bleeding control / shock station and is assigned by the Chief Examiner at the start of the exam.
All examiners undergo training through the Connecticut Office of Emergency Medical Services and each exam is supervised by an OEMS Chief Examiner.
