Welcome to Hutchinson Community College

Advanced EMT - CCOMP

The Advanced EMT short-term program is designed for individuals interested in providing care to patients in the pre-hospital setting at the advanced life support level. This short-term program will provide participants with opportunities to gain information, skills, and attitudes necessary for certification and practice as AEMTs in the state of Kansas. The short-term program has been approved by the Kansas Board of Emergency Medical Services. Students in the short-term program must be certified EMTs.

Careers

Our lives often depend upon the quick, knowledgeable, skillful, and compassionate care of emergency medical personnel. Once dispatched to an incident by an Emergency Medical Dispatcher, Emergency Medical Technicians (EMTs), Advanced EMTs (AEMTs) and Paramedics take patient histories and make physical assessments to determine the nature of the illness or injury. They give appropriate medical care following strict guidelines. AEMTs bridge the skills and interventions gap, giving them a unique role in pre-hospital medicine. EMTs, AEMTs, and Paramedics use special equipment to immobilize patients before transporting them to hospitals. Upon arrival to the hospital, they report patient conditions to medical personnel.

Accreditation

Hutchinson Community College is accredited by the Higher Learning Commission (HLC). The Higher Learning Commission is one of six regional institutional accreditors recognized by the US Department of Education and the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA).
