Accelerated Advanced EMT

The Accelerated Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AAEMT or Street to AEMT) program is designed to prepare students for entry-level positions as medical care providers (including recognition, assessment, and basic to advanced management) in a pre-hospital emergency setting. The program provides a foundation in EMS by taking the student through the process of EMS education starting with Basic EMT and includes additional knowledge and an expanding skill set beyond the EMT scope of practice. This includes seven courses to be completed all within the same semester. Courses follow the current U.S. Department of Transportation National Standard Curriculum. Successful completion of these courses will render the student eligible for licensure as an Advanced EMT in the state of Tennessee.
