Please email email@example.com for more information about setting up a department as a field site. Field sites contracts must be completed within the first month of class.
- What do students do during the practical skills days? Students practice all of the skills in the AEMT scope of practice. Students are in groups of 4-6. Each group has their own task trainers and equipment to ensure that every student gets ample time for student skills checks. Students also participate in patient simulations where they’re expected to manage a patient at the AEMT level.
