Why choose Advanced Emergency Medical Technician?

  • EMS teams are the heroes first on the scene and most qualified to make a life-or-death difference for the critically ill or injured.
  • Learn the skills needed to provide advanced preliminary treatment and transport patients to a medical facility for further treatment if necessary.
  • Qualify to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians’ certification exam required to apply for state licensure.
In an emergency situation, EMS teams are frequently called on to perform preliminary life-saving care. Teams with an advanced EMT provide an important bridge between EMT and paramedic skills and increase the likelihood that critically ill or injured patients will receive the rapid on-scene treatment needed to augment prehospital emergency care.
