EMR Certification Program
Bristol School District
Grade level/Age Range of Students in Program: Students rising to grade 11 and 12.
Primary Student Needs Program is Designed to Address
The primary purpose of the program is to provide students enrolled in the high school Allied Health Pathway an opportunity to gain an additional certification. Since this pathway leads to certification in both EMR and CNA and achieving both during the regular school year alone is difficult, students who take the summer program can exit high school with the opportunity to gain certification in both areas.
This summer program can be viewed as an extension of the school year program.
The program operates from July 6 to August 17, Monday through Thursday from 8am until 1pm.
There is no transportation provided, as the program was held at Bristol Schools.
The community partner is Tunxis Community College. The primary function of Tunxis is to allow the program to utilize their simulation laboratory and their certified trainers.
Staff Selection/Recruitment Procedures
A teacher from the Allied Health Pathway during the regular school year teaches the class along with certified trainers from Tunxis Community College.
Student Selection/Recruitment Procedures
The program is open to any student enrolled in the Allied Health Pathway. However, teachers from the program and guidance counselors encourage individual students. This summer there are 16 students enrolled in the program.
