  • General Information

    The AEMT Course is the newest certification level from the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT). It contains 200 to 240 hours of classroom instruction and a minimum of 104 hours of clinical experience. Besides being competent in all of the skills of the EMT, the AEMT also has the ability to perform limited advanced skills and provide pharmacological intervention to emergency patients. The AEMT scope of practice is focused on the acute management and transportation of critical and emergent patients. For many communities, the AEMTs provide an option to provide high benefit, lower risk advanced skills for systems that cannot support or justify Paramedic level care. Students enrolled in the St. Anthony Program will also receive CPR training, NREMT certification, IV approval and EKG education. The course concludes with written and practical examinations at the AEMT level in accordance with the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technician training regulations. Entrance requirements include High school diploma, GED, or college transcript and a minimum age of 18 years.
