Enrollment is based on a first come basis. A student is considered enrolled in the program upon receipt of completed application and full payment of tuition before the course has filled to capacity. All programs administered by the EMS Institute are open to the public, without regard to race, religion, sexual orientation, etc. Must be 16 years of age or older by end of course. You MUST be mentally mature enough to handle the college level EMT course.
The EMS Institute will make every reasonable attempt to accommodate individuals with disabilities. Due to the fact that certification is granted by the State of Connecticut, individuals with disabilities that may prevent or limit them from functioning as an EMT are asked to contact the Program Director, prior to the beginning of the program. Both the EMS Institute and the State of Connecticut require appropriate documentation of any disability. This course is to provide education. Any additional fees incurred will be the responsibility of the student. (please see NREMT.org site for details)
To maintain an appropriate environment for learning, class size is limited to a maximum of ~16-28 students. 5 additional spots are set-aside for challenge/audit or returning students.
Tuition must be paid in full no later than the first night of class. A student is not considered enrolled in the program until tuition is paid in full. Tuition may be paid by bank check, money order, certified check, cash or credit card. (cc payment with 5% transaction fee) *All forms are accepted up until 7 days before the class begins. All payments after that time are only accepted in the form of cash only. ( $60 non-refundable deposit is due with your application)
*No refunds after the first night of class, no exceptions*
Students may withdraw from the program with full reimbursement of tuition up to the first class. Due to the cost, after the first night of class students may “rollover” to the next program only. Note: should a student rollover to the next program, a fee with a 20% discount of the current tuition is due upon re-registration. Any later course taken, full tuition is due.
Students are expected to attend all sessions. A total of 12 hours of classroom time may be missed as long as grades are kept up to at least 86% or better. Should a student miss any class, the student is responsible for all information given on missed days. Should a student miss the CPR session or multiple Saturday session, the student will be assessed a $90.00 fee based on the availability of an instructor to present the session. This does not include the required textbook.
Several modular tests, numerous quizzes, homework, and skill sessions are done to assess the student’s understanding of the course material and required skills. Each modular exam must be passed with a score of 70%. Should a student initially score less than 70% on any exam, they will be given two additional attempts to raise their score to 70%. Failure to raise the modular score to 70% will result in the student not passing the course and not qualifying for state certification. Returning students must receive a 70 or better on ALL quiz or exams to remain a current student.
