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.
