EMT Refresher Courses


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.

The State of Connecticut Office of Emergency Medical Services has adopted the NREMT - National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) for renewal of EMR, EMT, and AEMT. As of January 1, 2020 all certified EMS providers wishing to renew must follow the requirements of this program.

The EMT National Continued Competency Program (NCCP) requires a total of 40 hours of continuing education to renew. The model requires continuing education in three components: (1) a national component, (2) a local/state component, and (3) an individual component. Broken down as follows:

- National Component = 20 hours (up to 7 distributive) of approved continuing education.

- Local/state component = 10 hours (Up to 7 hours distributive) CAPCE or state approved content


- Individual component = 10 hours (Up to 10 distributive) CAPCE or state approved

The New Britain EMS Academy offers EMT refresher curriculums to meet the needs and requirements of those looking to recertify their EMT certification in a one stop, all inclusive solution to your continuing education needs. Two course formats are offered:

Virtual Instructor Led Training

Virtual Instructor Led Training is live interactive education that allows for distance learning. VILT courses allow students to interact with the instructor and their peers in a live virtual environment. VILT courses are considered to be F5 which meets the requirement for live in person education requirements. Our online vendor provides continuous live VILT content that meets the requirements for the national component of the NCCR program.

The VILT package includes all the courses you need to get your in live National content plus a two year unlimited subscription to self-paced F3 CAPCE approved CMEs that meet the distance learning requirements for Local and Individual content hours under the NCCR program.

For an additional fee you can add an in class session including skills lab and Heartcode BLS which meets the 3 hours state component for live in class hours.

NCCP 20 hour In Class Instructor Led

This course is live and in class instructor led continuing education content. This course meets the current 20 hour NREMT NCCP requirements for National Content. Individuals are responsible for the remaining state and individual component content.

For an additional fee you can add an in class session including skills lab and Heartcode BLS which meets the 3 hours state component for live in class hours.

For the remaining 7 hours of state content and 10 hours of individual content you may purchase access to a CAPCE approved online CE program through NBEMSA or use your own CAPCE or state approved content.
