The EMT-Refresher course fulfills the mandatory hours component of the National Registry EMT Registration and meets the requirements for EMTs set forth by the State of Connecticut. Students enrolled in this class will receive updated training on all emergency medical care skills. Instruction will be provided through varying combinations of lecture, practical skill based learn, and online self-directed learning. Students must complete any needed online self-directed learning prior to participating in this course.

CTTCI offers the EMT Refresher Program in the following formats:

  • Traditional Learning - This is a classroom based setting with a combination of both lecture and practical skill learning.
  • Blended Learning - This is a program in which most of the lectures are replaced with an online self-directed learning component and the student only has to come to a classroom for one weekend of skill based learning and testing.
  • Refresher2U Program - We'll bring our Mobile EMS Training Ambulance to your service or organization for either a Traditional or Blended Learning 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 EMT 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 36 hours of CT DPH Continuing Education credits, students can then take the practical and written test.  You can take all your CE courses through CTTCI or just select a few that you can then apply to your CT DPH Continuing Education credits.

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.
