An AEMT certification is the next-level after EMT for licensed EMS provider and the first step toward a career Emergency Medical Services. This course stresses a greater depth of knowledge about the anatomy and physiology of the body and how sickness and injury affect people. Most importantly the increased care and treatments available to stabilize people in emergent situations. The format of this course stresses the application of skill through scenarios, minimizing time spent in lecture. It prepares the EMT to offer a higher level of emergency care at the scene and to work as a full team member on the ambulance.
