Advanced EMT

The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT or Advanced EMT) program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions as medical care providers (including recognition, assessment, and basic to advanced management) in a pre-hospital emergency setting.  The program provides additional knowledge and an expanding skill set beyond the EMT scope of practice.  This includes six courses to be completed all within the same semester. Courses follow the current U.S. Department of Transportation National Standard Curriculum. Successful completion of these courses will render the student eligible for licensure as an Advanced EMT in the state of Tennessee.
