Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT)
In SFCC’s Advanced Emergency Medical Technician Program (AEMT) you’ll learn from experienced professionals who are committed to providing high-quality emergency medical technician (EMT) training. The advanced emergency medical technician program or AEMT, offers students the ability to expand upon the foundational basic life support skills taught in the EMT program. AEMT’s can provide some advanced life support skills to patients. The AEMT program covers prehospital pharmacology, medication administration, and intravenous access while also providing a more in-depth education on medical and trauma patient care. The program is 16 weeks and prepares students for the NREMT certification exam. AEMT certification is ideal for students seeking employment with an ambulance service or fire department. It also is highly recommended for students seeking admission into the paramedic program.
To apply to this program, please see the Paramedic Application Checklist and complete the EMSI Paramedic Program Application in addition to the college admissions form.
Upon completing the program, graduates are prepared to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) certification exams, and obtain a NM state license at the Basic, Intermediate and Paramedic levels.
