EMT-Basic (EMT-B): 4 credits, lower division level
This is the initial course to prepare students for state certification as a basic level EMT (EMT-B) in CT. The course includes studying illness and injury as seen in patients, providing pre-hospital medical care in the field, and transporting patients to appropriate medical facilities. Both specific knowledge objectives and practical skills are involved. Successful completion of the course qualifies the student to take State of CT certification examinations.
EMT-Intermediate (EMT-I): 3 credits, lower division level
This course is designed to prepare currently certified Emergency Medical Technician-Basics for work as an EMT-Intermediate. The program meets state and federal curriculum requirements, and students who successfully complete the course are eligible to take state and national certification exams. The class emphasizes patient assessment, as well as pathophysiology of conditions commonly encountered by the EMT-Intermediate. Advanced airway management, principles and techniques of intravenous therapy, and application and use of the pneumatic anti-shock garment are also included.
