What is an Advanced EMT (AEMT)?

An Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT), or EMT Intermediate, is simply an EMT Basic trained and skilled in some advanced level care. The AEMT is the bridge between your average EMT and the certified Paramedic, and was once referred to as EMT-Intermediate. An Advanced EMT can not only preform basic life support skills of an EMT, but can also deliver limited advanced life support.

AEMTs are commonly found as fire fighters and law enforcement officers.

How Do I Become an Advanced EMT?

To become an AEMT/EMT Intermediate, one would first need to find out the exact licensing requirements for the state you live in. To work professionally as an AEMT, each state requires a licence with the state directly. Almost (if not every) state has a web page dedicated to EMS licensing requirements. The web pages cover the exact requirements, application process, and fees needed to attain the state licence.

In almost every state, each AEMT hopeful needs to first become a certified/licensed Emergency Medical Technician (EMT).

Each AEMT applicant needs to ensure that there are no convictions in their criminal history. Felony convictions, drug related charges, etc would prevent accessing protected areas in hospitals/EMS.

AEMTs should expect to drive an ambulance at some time in their career. Ensure you already have, or are eligible for a driver’s license prior to choosing this training pathway.
