OAR 333-265-0015 Advanced Emergency Medical Technician Field Internships

  1. A field internship is required as part of an advanced EMT course and shall include:
    1. Clinical experience performed under the supervision of a preceptor of at least eight hours and 20 patient contacts in a hospital emergency department or medical clinic where the skills within an AEMT scope of practice are performed under the supervision of a preceptor; and
    2. Prehospital experience of at least eight hours under the supervision of an AEMT or above where the skills within the scope of practice of an AEMT are performed.

Students must be licensed as an Oregon EMT and should be experienced and confident in their skills at that level before proceeding on to the Advance EMT level. AEMT training expands on the basic skills and knowledge of an EMT. This training includes a more in-depth understanding of a variety of disease and injury processes and their appropriate management, as well as some additional skills such as intravenous access and some additional medication administration.

For state licensure the students will be required to pass the National Registry EMT, cognitive AEMT written exam as well as pass the NREMT skills proficiency test after completing the course with a passing grade. Time and location still to be determined for the skills test.

Registering for this course requires that the student register with KCC and complete the pre-requisites for the course, which include providing all of the information on the “Student File Information Form” showing your EMT license, your current Health Care Provider CPR card and submitting your current shot records. The course is limited to 20 students and those accepted to the course will be those that complete the entry requirements first, in other words –first come first served.

AEMT education or licensure is not required prior to entering a paramedic course.

Employment: There is limited data on employment for this level, however the rural communities in our county will benefit from some of their volunteers becoming AEMT’s. EMT that have been trained at KCC have gone on to become paramedics, medical assistants, nurses, ski patrol members, search and rescue team members and into other aspects of the medical community.
