Emergency Medical Responder (EMR)​


Emergency Medical Responders are the entry level of Emergency Medical Services (EMS) providers. As such, they have completed the first step toward the Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) level of training. ​

The care that EMRs can provide is the most basic of emergency services and very often, the most important. ​

This program will consist of a formal 99+ hour class which will include both extensive Cognitive and Psychomotor learning and demonstration of the required National Registry curriculum components. ​

Program Requirements: ​

  • Must be physically capable of bending, kneeling, lifting patients and equipment. ​
  • All students must have a valid CT State Driver’s License.
  • Attend a Mandatory Orientation

This course is appropriate for Police, Firefighters and anyone interested in pursuing a career in Emergency Medical Services. This is an excellent entry into continuing on to become an EMT, PCT, CNA, LPN, RN, PA and even MD. This class will lead to formal certification as an EMR by the Connecticut Department of Public Health (DPH). ​
