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.
AEMT Program participants learn to:
Provide competent clinical pre-hospital care to the ill or injured
Master skills and concepts essential to the operation of EMS systems and other agencies
Interact effectively with other health-care professionals and patients
Link theoretical and practical experience and knowledge of health care with specific application to EMS
