CT State EMT Practical Exam
Simulated Victim Observer Registration
Oxford Ambulance Association is an approved testing site for Connecticut and NREMT practical/psychomotor examinations. All exams are supervised under the direction of Department of Health Office of Emergency Medical Services. Anyone can sign up as a victim and there is no limit as to the number of times you can volunteer. Volunteering as a victim allows EMT students to see the testing process prior to taking the exam.
Simulated victims must arrive by 7:30 AM to participate in this role.
Simulated victims arriving after 7:50 AM will NOT be admitted into the examination
Rules and Requirements
OEMS requires us to have a specified number of victims – if you expect to be late or unable to make the examination, please notify us firstname.lastname@example.org as soon as possible so we can plan accordingly.
Once you have started the NREMT testing process you are no longer allowed to participate as an observer or victim.
Although most examinations are finished before 12:00PM. it is important that participants are able to attend the examination until their stations are completed which may be later than 1:00 PM.
What to Wear to Your Examination
Volunteers must not wear any clothing that identifies them to an organization, agency, or department (i.e. Fire Department shirts). No hats are permitted in the examination. Clothing should also be appropriate for the movements and activities being performed (skirts, open-toe shoes, and low-cut shorts and/or shirts will not be permitted). Those dressed inappropriately will be required to change attire prior to the start time of the test.
Outside papers such as NREMT skill sheets and notes, electronic devices, weapons, and books are not permitted in the testing or staging areas. Please leave these items in your vehicle or at the front desk. Oxford Ambulance is not responsible for items left at the examination.
Volunteers may not help or provide assistance to candidates during the examination. Station scenarios and candidate performances are confidential and may not be discussed or shared. Any volunteers that do not comply with OEMS requirements will be dismissed from the examination and may jeopardize their ability to test in Connecticut.
Phones, Smart Watches, Radios, and Pagers are NOT permitted in the building.
