The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) certificate program is a comprehensive program consisting of both classroom (didactic), skills lab, clinical (hospital observation) and field (ambulance observation) components. The course adheres to the 2009 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.
Students will develop more sophisticated emergency treatment skills including assessment skills, advanced airway techniques and medication administration. Students will also perform a variety of patient assessments and skills including intravenous, intraosseous, intranasal, inhalation and intramuscular injections on real patients under the direction of a physician in the emergency setting. The goal of Crowder’s AEMT program is to produce competent, entry-level AEMT’s to serve in career and volunteer positions.

The AEMT program is an online, in-class (hybrid) program designed to accommodate the busy Emergency Medical Technician (EMT) who can’t attend classes several days a week. The program consists of four, 4-week blocks (totaling 16 weeks, or one academic semester) and an additional two, 4-week blocks (totaling eight weeks) for a total program length of 24 weeks.
By enrolling in the hybrid AEMT program, students agree to travel to Southwest Missouri for all clinical rotations with whom Crowder College has contractual agreements. Out-of-state clinical partners, other than those already established by Crowder College in bordering states, will not be pursued.
At the completion of the clinical hours, AEMT Candidates will be eligible to sit for the National Registry AEMT Examinations.
