Hi! Does anyone know a place that started Advanced EMT classes already? About how many hours of clinicals and classroom hours are required? What skills are in this new level? Thanks!

I think you will find this depends on:

A) Which state you are talking about
B) I-85 or I-99 (I-85 curriculum ends March 31, 2013, I-99 curriculum ends December 31, 2013)
C) Which educational establishment

etc, etc, etc

Or is it the new in-betweenie that you are asking about?

In Alabama the first class of the new Advanced EMT program at the local Comm College is in progress this Fall. Here it's a one semester program. You go to class 3 nights a week, for 4 hours a night, for 16 weeks. Plus 90 clinical hours. All that works out to 10 college credit hours.

Not sure exactly what the scope is for the new Advanced: IV's, some kinds of tubes, more meds.
