EMR to EMT Bridge
This EMR to EMT Bridge Program is an entry level course of 120+ hours that will prepare students for participation in pre-hospital patient care.
This is a State of Connecticut approved bridge course that trains an Emergency Medical Responder (EMR) to become an Emergency Medical Technician (EMT). Students enrolling in this course will be required to provide proof of a valid EMR certification.
EMT’s are the first line of treatment providing care that is critical to patient survival. The EMT course provides instruction in life support skills including assessment of patient condition, airway management, treatment of bleeding control, shock recognition, and more. The program is a combination of classroom instruction and clinical observation. Students will have daily online course work to complete in class, so, some type of portable computer is needed for class.
The final step in the program is completion of the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification exam. The examination fee of $125 is separate from the tuition and is paid at the time of the exam.
You must be 16 years of age, by the end of the class, to become certified as an EMT in the State of Connecticut. Students under the age of 18 are not eligible to be certified by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. Details on how to become an NREMT at age 18 can be found at www.nremt.org.
