This certified training consists of 480 hours of emergency medical training through classroom, laboratory and scenario-based training. Students will also receive their TCCC certification through NAEMT. At the successful completion of this course, the student will receive their State of Arizona and NREMT Advanced Emergency Medical Technician certification which will require recertification every two years.
Students who successfully complete this course will receive one-year free membership fees for their affiliation and training records maintenance.
This level of EMT education expands upon the basic level, and includes advanced education in patient assessment, medical terminology and shock management, and the establishment of intravenous (IV) fluids, veni-puncture to obtain blood samples, and the use of advanced airway devices, including endotracheal intubation.
In addition to classroom education, AEMT students also complete clinical hours on the ambulance and in the hospital setting. Some persons may elect to pursue additional EMT education (see below) above and beyond the AEMT although this is not required. NREMT requirements can be found at https://www.nremt.org/nremt/about/reg_aemt_history.asp.
