New Britain EMS Academy

Paramedic Training Program Highlights

Paramedic training courses at New Britain EMS Academy are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation of Allied Health Education Programs (CAAHEP) based on recommendation of the Committee on Accreditation of Educational Programs for the Emergency Medical Services Professions (CoAEMSP).

  • We believe in TOTAL IMMERSION TRAINING – through an integrated approach to anatomy and physiology, paramedicine, and high-fidelity simulation in a real-world environment – “WE TRAIN AS WE FIGHT!”
  • Our Academy-style learning environment, complete with issued uniforms for each phase of the program, low student-to-instructor ratios, and use of recruit/instructor relationships, build workforce readiness and student camaraderie through our emphasis on teamwork and leadership.
  • We incorporate compelling training opportunities such as Escaping Violent Encounters, and Tactical Emergency Casualty Care to facilitate integration of medical care with related sectors of public safety.
