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 EMT Program at the New Britain EMS Academy is how we got our start. We have been providing this entry-level training for students since 2006. Since this time we have graduated more than 1000 EMT students. On average we conduct eight (8) EMT programs yearly.  We offer a variety of scheduling options including day & evening offerings in the fall, spring and summer. We also run our very popular high performance session in the summer. Our program consists of 180+ hours of didactic, lab and simulation experience. Our EMT programs have access to the Simulation Center at our Academy on a regular basis. We are the only EMS training institution in Connecticut with this level of Human Simulation technology. As part of your training you will spend 18-30 hours on ride along internships with the EMTs and Paramedics at New Britain EMS. This is the added benefit of taking your training with an EMS institution. We have a strong track record of hiring our Academy graduates (both EMT and Paramedic). We do this because we train each student as if they could be a future employee. In other words, we give you all we can to ensure you will graduate a clinically competent, compassionate, workforce ready EMT.

Our price of $1250.00 is an all inclusive pricing structure ensuring that you receive the best value available in the greater Hartford area when it comes to EMT training. We do have a payment plan available to assist our students.  Our program cost includes:

 1. Tuition
 2. Parking

 4. American Heart Association BLS for Healthcare Providers Certification
