Emergency Medical Technician (EMT)

The Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) program is designed for anyone who is interested in learning more about the emergency response system and caring for patients in the back of an ambulance en route to the hospital. Students gain the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation for sick and injured patients.

Topics include patient assessment, cardiac arrest management, airway management, patient immobilization, diabetic emergencies, strokes and seizures.

Students meet for lectures and skills training on campus and also complete a mandatory observation at the Middlesex Health Emergency Department.

This course is offered in cooperation with Middlesex Health, Office of Emergency Medical Services, and the Connecticut Department of Public Health. The curriculum prepares students to take the exams to become nationally registered and state-certified as Emergency Medical Technicians. This program is open to students aged 16 and older.

Students who become state certified EMTs are eligible to receive college credit through Charter Oak State College.
