The EMR Refresher course covers the material required for the EMR level and will bridge the gap from the knowledge and skills based on the 1994 National Standard Curriculum to the 2009 National EMS Standards. The course offers 16 hours of instructor-led instruction focused on practical skills validation. 

The CPR portion of this course is a blend of online and classroom instruction. Most of the lectures are replaced with an online, self-directed learning component and students come to a classroom for the skill based learning and testing.

CTTCI offers the  EMR Refresher Program in the following formats:

  • Traditional Learning - This is a classroom based setting with a combination of both lecture and practical skill learning.
  • Refresher2U Program - We'll bring our Mobile EMS Training Ambulance to your service or organization for either a Traditional course. This is a program that can be set up as a flat fee closed course (only your service) or as a hosting site open course (public can attend).
  • New CTTCI offers an easy, alternative pathway to completing your EMR Refresher. Each month CTTCI offers a two-hour module that covers specific topics like Oxygen Delivery and Pulse Oximetry, Stroke Management, and Childbirth and Neonatal Care. After completing the 12 month proogram, students can then take the practical and written test.  You can take all your CEU courses through CTTCI or just select a few that you can then apply to your CT DPH Continuing Education

Training Center

CTTCI facilities include over 2,500 square feet of dedicated educational space, an outdoor classroom for specialized training such as vehicle extrication, mass causality events, and hazardous material training.

However, she quickly fell in love with Philosophy and French and graduated with a BA in both, garnering Phi Sigma Tau National Honor Society recognition for her academic performance in Philosophy along the way. After college, Meg spent nearly ten years working in the Fixed Income market in NYC during which time she earned (2) MBAs, Operations Management and Entrepreneurship, both from the Zicklin School of Business and again won Sigma Iota Epsilon National Honor Society recognition. Following a move back to CT in pursuit of a better quality of life, Meg founded her own business, Ideas Incorporated, through which she provided operational support services to start-ups and small businesses. As life carried on, however, Meg’s thoughts began returning to her initial passion – medicine. In 2009, Meg spontaneously registered for an EMT class and has never looked back on the decision. She went on to earn an AEMT certificate in 2010, and later graduated valedictorian of the 2013 Yale New Haven Sponsor Hospital Paramedic Program. Meg recently spent more than four years working for a large commercial ambulance provider in CT.
