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 in caring for patients in the back of an ambulance en route to the hospital. Students will gain the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation to sick and injured patients.
Topics covered in this course 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 Middlesex Hospital in the emergency department.
This course is offered in cooperation with Middlesex Hospital, 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 of Connecticut certified at the basic level.
This Program offers NREMT Practice testing on the third Sunday of each month. To register visit www.firstapproach.org. All registrations and payments for testing can be done through this site.
The EMT program is looking for volunteers to act as victims for the CT Practical EMT exam on Sunday 8/18, 8 – 1 pm. This is a great way for current or prospective EMT students to become familiar with the certification exam. Reply to email@example.com if interested.
