In Compliance with CDC and State of Connecticut guidance for social protocol during the Coronavirus (COVID -19) emergency, we have postponed all classes the New Britain EMS Academy offers until a time which it is deemed appropriate to reopen to the public. In the interim, check out our NCCR approved distance learning options, both self-paced and virtual instructor led.

We are committed to the long term success of all our students and continue to stand committed to fulfill our obligations for current students and those to come. Foremost we value the health and safety of our students, staff, families, and our community.

Last month New Britain EMS was honored with receiving Gold Level recognition from the American Heart Association's Mission Lifeline Program. Agencies that receive this have achieved 75% or higher performance on each applicable Mission Lifeline EMS Achievement Measures for 24 consecutive months to improve quality of care for STEMI patients. New Britain EMS Academy falls under the Professional and Standards and Training Division of New Britain EMS. Part of this division's mission includes staff development and internal training and quality improvement. We are honored to support our crews and their development and education as part of achieving this goal.

Congratulations to the NBEMSA Training Center and Outreach Coordinator Kristen Farrell for her recent induction into the New Britain Lions Club.

What's The Big Secret?

on Monday, 19 June 2017. Posted in Academy Update

New Britain EMS Academy is proud to announce that in order to better serve our customers, citizens, and partner we will be moving. After 7 years of residency and growth at the CCSU ITBD facilities we have outgrown our needed footprint and will be moving into a facility that is custom designed to meet our needs. Our new facility will be located at 1 Herald Square in the repurposed New Britain Herald Building. We will be sharing occupancy with our good friends at Herald Square Dialysis in this all medical office building. The new Academy will feature a flagship classroom seating 50 people, 2 classrooms each seating 20, and 8 simulation / breakout rooms that will house our high fidelity simulation program including our sim ambulance. We will have an administrative wing that is designed to meet our growing demands with a multi-purpose conference room that is capable of functioning as a small classroom for 10. We are hoping to be in by July 1 2017. Stay tuned for updates and our Facebook reveal.
