The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) Course is a comprehensive program consisting of both classroom (didactic), skills lab, clinical (hospital observation) and field (ambulance observation) components. The course adheres to the current National EMS Education Standards which are based on the National EMS Core Content and the National EMS Scope of Practice that define the minimal entry-level educational competencies for each level of EMS training and has replaced the DOT National Standards curricula used in the past. The goal of the AEMT education course is to produce competent, entry level AEMTs to serve in career and volunteer positions within the EMS system. Participation in the distance learning classroom requires a webcam and headset with microphone capabilities. A headset is required to prevent microphone/speaker feedback while attending the live classroom. Please use a headset to avoid causing echo for others.
