Advanced EMT (AEMT) Course Online
Advanced Emergency Medical Technician Course

This Online Advanced EMT (AEMT) Course is Accepted for NREMT Certification.

This Online AEMT training course is a self-directed, interactive, distance learning course that is approved for NREMT AEMT Certification. The course curriculum covers all AEMT knowledge and skill requirements.

If you are a self motivated, goal oriented EMT who enjoys being challenged then this is a great educational opportunity. If you are looking for an easy route to NREMT AEMT Certification then this course is NOT for you.

Upon successful completion of this AEMT course a student will be authorized to take the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT) AEMT practical skills and cognitive examinations. After passing the examinations the student will be awarded NREMT AEMT Certification. These certification exams are used as basis for state licensure or certification in most states, or are honored with reciprocity during the licensure process.

NOTE: If you will be sponsored by a licensed EMS agency that can provide you with sufficient clinical time to meet the patient contact requirements of this program, we require you to have a signed affiliation agreement on file with EMT & Fire Training, Inc. prior to starting coursework. Speak with our staff about this step during your enrollment.
