The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) course adheres to the U.S. Department of Transportation EMT National Standard Curriculum. This training program is a combination of both online education and hands-on training.
The primary focus of the AEMT is to provide basic and limited advanced emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. The individual will obtain the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. The AEMT will function as a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. The AEMT will perform interventions with basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance. The AEMT is a link from the scene to the emergency healthcare system.
Upon successful completion of the AEMT Online course, graduates will be eligible to test for a National Registry of EMT’s ‘AEMT Certification’ through PearsonVue, a 3rd party testing center.
