Becoming an EMT

Emergency Medical Technicians provide out-of-hospital emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical services (EMS) system. EMTs have the basic knowledge and skills necessary to stabilize and safely transport patients ranging from non-emergency and routine medical transports to life-threatening emergencies.

Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response system under medical oversight. Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic equipment typically found in an ambulance. Emergency Medical Technicians are a critical link between the scene of an emergency and the health care system.

Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) Advanced Course

AEMTs respond to 911 calls for emergency medical assistance to provide efficient and immediate care to the critically ill and injured, and to transport the patient to a medical facility. AEMTs also help provide first-aid treatment or life support care to sick or injured patients. The AEMT has a limited list of medications they can administer, as well as start IVs and intubations.

The course follows the State of Wyoming Office of Emergency Medical Services (OEMS) guidelines for certification as an Advanced EMT. Successful completion of the course also leads to certification by the American Heart Association in Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation and Emergency Cardiac Care.

Because state licensure is required for you to operate in this capacity, you cannot have a criminal record i.e. violations on your driving record or conviction of crimes against people. If you have any questions about your ability to be licensed please contact the OEMS office at 888-228-8996; CCH cannot help determine licensing.

Requirements will be a GED or High School Diploma (or still be enrolled in school). Must be at least 18 years of age at completion of the course. In additional to classroom work you will be required to do 36 hours of Emergency Medical Services ride time, and 36 hours of Emergency Department clinical time.
