With the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) course students begin their journey into advanced level care by learning procedures and interventions that require much more extensive training. The knowledge gained through the EMT certification is expanded upon here. Through clinical time in the emergency room and on ambulance services, students will hone these newly acquired skills in order to enter the workforce as a competent and proficient advanced healthcare provider. The AEMT class runs 256 hours, which includes class time (didactic), lab time (psychomotor), and a separate clinical class where students spend time in the hospital and on the ambulances.
Students should have completed:
CVCC offers a path to earn the AEMT certificate through the EMS Health Science: Therapeutic and Diagnostic Service diploma program or through a Continuing Education class. The AEMT class is unique in that students must take the AEMT Clinical Practicum course at the same time. This clinical class has no set class times but requires students to go into the hospital and on the ambulance to complete the course. To discuss the opportunities and how to start, contact the EMS department at CVCC. Students will be guided through the courses and registration process to achieve the best possible path of success.
