Echo Hose Ambulance Training Center



About Echo Hose



The Echo Hose Ambulance Training Department is constructed of a team of highly qualified and experienced EMS professionals.  As the primary center for EMS education in the Lower Naugatuck Valley, the Echo Hose Training Department provides educational opportunities for both new and experienced providers.  Our instructors bring over 50 years of experience into each class.  Each year Echo Hose Training Department offers four to six initial Emergency Medical Technician courses in additional to bi-monthly Emergency Medical Technician and Medical Response Technician recertification courses. 

      For the past five years Echo Hose Training Department, in conjunction with the Shelton Board of Education and Shelton High School proudly offers emergency medical technician courses as part of the Shelton High curriculum, allowing students to obtain advanced education and career opportunities as well as fulfilling needed requirements for graduation.

In March 2009 Echo Hose Ambulance established residence at our new Training Center located on Howe Avenue.  This facility is designed to enhance student learning and provide opportunities for community training programs. The new center appeals to both students and instructors as it is equipped with individual break out areas containing the most up to date equipment and mannequins available.    

      The facility also provides a centralized location for EMS students from all over Connecticut to sit for initial and recertification testing.  Currently the facility offers students the ability to select one of two Saturdays each month to test. 

      Seminars and Continuing Education classes are offered throughout the year and cover a wide range of topics.  In attempt to improve the overall health of Shelton,  Echo Hose Ambulance is excited to announce Zumba fitness classes beginning in January 2010 which will be open to the public.   

      On behalf of Echo Hose Ambulance, we would like to thank you for considering us as your choice for furthering your education in personal health, healthcare and fitness.
