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
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. In addition, CTTCI operates a Mobile Training Ambulance which is utilized to simulate the out-of-hospital conditions EMS personnel face and to educate students on safe emergency vehicle operations.
CTTCI’s training rooms are equipped with state-of-the-art video systems and computer conferencing equipment. There is a fully functional kitchen area that gives you the freedom of bringing your own meals or CTTCI can assist in catering to allow you to focus on the training you came for.
