Event description

Description

This Adavenced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) course is an accellerated 100 hour classroom and field based emergency medical program. This level of education prepares students for entry and/or intermediate level emergency response positions in the State of Michigan.

This course is approved by the Michigan Department of Health & Human Services Division of EMS. Upon successful completion, students are eligible to take the National Registry Certification test as required by the State of Michigan for licensure.

Advanced EMT's are typically employed by private ambulance services, fire departments and as hospital Emergency room technicians.

The Advanced EMT course curriculum prepares the student to perform a variety of medical techniques including but not limited to:

  • Advanced airway control and oxygen delivery
  • In-depth understanding of anatomy and physiology
  • Intravenous fluid and medication administration
  • More definitive patient assessment
  • Assisting with medications such as epinephrine auto injectors, nitroglycerine and emergency breathing treatments
  • A more comprehensive look at disease processes, including acid base balance and blood chemistry
  • Handling more complex medical and traumatic life-threatening illness and/or injuries
  • Pediatric assessment and field treatment including intra-osseous cannulation and fluid therapy
  • Assisting Paramedics and hospital personnel with more advanced care
  • Introduction to cardiac ECG interpreation

Students will be evaluated in the following core competency areas: didactic, practical, clinical and internship performance. In addition, students achieving an 80% or higher and passing the course final computer based test, will receive a certificate of completion and be eligible for National Registry testing and State licensure. Practical skills are graded on a pass/fail basis and students will be required to pass all practical examinations to successfully complete the program. All clinical and internship rotations are graded on attendance, attitude and skills performance, which are evaluated by field mentors, a clinical coordinator and/or the course instructor.
