Course Introduction

The CT State EMT Practical Exam is the psychomotor (practical skills) portion of the testing process leading to State of Connecticut certification and NREMT registration as an Emergency Medical Technician.

This practical exam is one part of a two part CT certification process with the other part being a cumulative written exam administered by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians. This CT State Practical Exam is administered under the strict direction and oversight of the State of CT Department of Public Health (DPH) Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS). The complete exam consists of a five station exam process. All five stations must be passed in order to successfully pass the exam. If only one station is failed then the candidate must meet with their  EMS instructor for retraining,  at which time the skill will be signed off and submitted to the State. If two stations are failed then the participant must schedule and take a 2 Station Retest which only requires retesting those failed stations. If 3 or more stations are failed then a complete exam must be retaken which requires testing all five stations again.

The exam consists of the following stations:

  1. Cardiac Arrest Management
  2. Bag-Valve-Mask Ventilation of an Apneic Adult Patient
  3. Patient Assessment/Management – Medical
  4. Patient Assessment/Management – Trauma
  5. Random Skill- Splinting, Bleeding control and shock management
