NAEMT’s Advanced Medical Life Support (AMLS) course is the first EMS education program that fully addresses how to best assess and manage the most common medical crises in patients, offering a "think outside the box" methodology.  It is for all levels of practitioners with a strong commitment to patient care, including emergency medical technicians, paramedics, nurses, nurse practitioners, physician assistants, nurse anesthetists and physicians.

The course emphasizes the use of scene size-up, history, interactive group discussion on potential treatment strategies, and physical exam to systematically rule out and consider possibilities and probabilities in treating patients’ medical crises. The course offers an initial assessment-based approach that progresses to a diagnostic-based approach to quickly develop the best treatment plan.

AMLS is a sixteen-hour, two-day program that consists of interactive lectures, teaching and evaluation stations. The interactive/case based lectures include the following topics: altered mental status and neurologic disorders, respiratory dysfunction, shock, chest discomfort, endocrine, metabolic and environmental disorders, abdominal discomfort, infectious disease, and toxicologic emergencies, hazardous materials and weapons of mass destruction. Teaching stations follow the associated lectures each day. 

AMLS is endorsed by the National Association of EMS Physicians (NAEMSP). It is accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for PreHospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) and is recognized by the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT). Students who successfully complete the AMLS course will receive a certificate of completion that is valid for four years.  

NAEMT's All Hazards Disaster Response (AHDR) course prepares EMS practitioners at all levels to respond to the many types of disaster scenarios they may encounter – floods, tornadoes, terror attacks, etc.

This 8-hour course teaches participants how to analyze potential threats in their area, assess available resources, and create a response plan that will save lives.

Features of a response plan covered in the course include:

  • Communicating effectively during disasters.
  • Mutual aid and interoperability.
  • Managing resources such as supplies, medications and equipment.
  • Triage and transportation strategies and challenges.
  • Patient tracking and evacuation.

GEMS provides EMS practitioners at all levels the skills and knowledge to handle the unique medical, social, environmental and communications challenges of older adults. Developed by NAEMT, in partnership with the American Geriatrics Society, GEMS empowers EMS practitioners to help improve medical outcomes and quality of life for geriatric patients.

GEMS is offered as a basic Core course and an Advanced course. Both courses are appropriate for EMTs, paramedics, emergency medical responders, nurses, physician assistants and physicians. The 8-hour courses enhance the competence, confidence and compassion of EMS practitioners in responding to geriatric patients.

Course Content includes

  • Geriatric specific content on fall prevention, epidemiology, polypharmacy, end-of-life issues and do-not-resuscitate orders.
  • Trauma care and disaster care for older patients.
  • Case scenarios to encourage student interaction and discussion.
  •  An exploration of mobile integrated healthcare-community paramedicine (MIH-CP) and the EMS role in patient advocacy.
  • Videos on MIH-CP, elder abuse and trauma care for the elderly, featuring real-world scenarios that demonstrate assessing, treating and communicating with older patients.
  • Small group discussion and simulations including a station that allows students to experience vision, sensory and movement disorders, deepening their understanding of and compassion for geriatric patients.

NAEMT's Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading continuing education program for prehospital emergency trauma care. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care through global education.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons' Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. 

PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care in your area and decrease mortality. The program is based on a prehospital trauma care philosophy, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. This may require an approach to the trauma patient that varies from traditional treatment modalities. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The PHTLS course is continuously updated and revised to keep up with the advances in the field, ATLS Guidelines and feedback from PHTLS participants.

You will be provided with a text book (PHTLS 9th Edition).  

Students who successfully complete this course will receieve certification in PHTLS.
