San Antonio College Continuing Education EMS ACADEMY 

Continuing Education EMS 

The San Antonio College EMS Academy offers a comprehensive variety of EMS and Healthcare Provider Courses for the individual seeking a career in the EMS professions. We also offer this training on-site and will design our classes and training around your institution’s schedule and specific needs.

 

Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (AEMT) 

AEMT is a new National Registry certification based on the new national standards. NREMT will not be certifying or re-certifying EMT Intermediates within the next few years. Based on this, the Advanced EMT will take its place for those who wish to stay Nationally Registered. 

 

 

 

 

 

  

Advanced Emergency Medical Technician 

The primary focus of the Advanced Emergency Medical Technician is to provide basic and limited advanced emergency medical care and transportation for critical and emergent patients who access the emergency medical system. This individual possesses the basic knowledge and skills necessary to provide patient care and transportation. 

Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians function as part of a comprehensive EMS response, under medical oversight. Advanced Emergency Medical Technicians perform interventions with the basic and advanced equipment typically found on an ambulance. 

The Advanced Emergency Medical Technician is a link from the scene to the emergency health care system. 

Educational Requirements: One of the eligibility requirements for licensure at this level requires successful completion of an accredited Advanced Emergency Medical Technician course. 

The AEMT course is made up of four different classes taken concurrently. They are: 

  1. EMSP 1038-Introduction to Advanced Practice 
  2. EMSP 1055-Trauma Management 
  3. EMSP 1056-Patient Assessment & Airway Management 
  4. EMSP 2060-Clinical

Student Non-Academic Grievance Procedures (from San Antonio College Student Handbook, 2012-2013) 

SAC acknowledges the possibility that incidents may occur outside the academic setting that might result in a student feeling he/she is the object of unjust treatment by a College employee. This concern could include misconduct or a condition the student believes to be unfair, inequitable, discriminatory, or a hindrance to the student’s educational progress. This policy does not apply to decisions regarding financial aid eligibility, student disciplinary actions, or those pertaining to academic matters (see Academic Grievance Procedure above). 

   

Prior to initiating a formal grievance, the student should make a reasonable effort to resolve the problem with the person, or supervisor of the program, against whom the complaint is being made. This should occur as soon as possible following the protested circumstance. If the complaint is not resolved to the student’s satisfaction, the following formal grievance procedure can be initiated. 

   

Definition of Terms: 

  1. “Grievance”: A claim that a student has been the subject of an unjust action or has been denied his/her rights by an employee of the College. 
  2. “Appeal”: An action taken to request a review of and possible change to the recommended resolution of the grievance. 
  3. “Working days”: Weekdays (Monday through Friday). 

   

Procedure: 

  1. Within 5 working days of the final informal attempt at resolution, a signed and dated written complaint should be made to the immediate supervisor of the person or program against whom the complaint is being made. All grievances must include the following: 
    1. Student’s name and contact information, including day-time phone number, mailing address, and email address (if available) 
    2. A full description of the grievance, providing relevant dates of events and including the names of all parties involved 
    3. A statement describing attempt(s) to resolve the issue informally 
    4. The proposed resolution, relief or action sought 
     
  2. Upon receipt of the written grievance, the supervisor will review the document and meet with any or all of the parties cited in the grievance. The supervisor will render a decision within 10 working days. If either the student or employee is not satisfied with the decision and wishes to appeal, he/she must do so by submitting a written appeal to the dean within 5 working days. In addition to a copy of the original grievance and supervisor’s decision, the student or employee must provide a brief statement justifying the appeal. 
  3. Upon receipt of the written appeal, the dean will review the documents and investigate the request. The dean will render a decision within 10 working days. If either the student or employee is dissatisfied with the dean’s decision, he/she has 10 working days to request it be reviewed by the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee. In addition to a copy of all information provided to the dean, the student or employee must provide a brief statement justifying the additional appeal. 
  4. Upon receipt of the written appeal, the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee will review the documents and investigate the request. The Vice President of Student Affairs or designee will render a decision within 10 working days. If either the student or employee is dissatisfied with the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee’s decision, he/she has 10 working days to request it be reviewed by the College president. In addition to a copy of all information provided to the Vice President of Student Affairs or designee, the student or employee must provide a brief statement justifying the continued appeal. 
  5. The president of the College is the final reviewer for SAC and will render a decision in writing within 10 working days of receiving the written request of appeal.
