Advancing the EMS profession

The mission of NAEMT education is to improve patient care through high quality, cost-effective, evidence-based education that strengthens and enhances the knowledge and skills of EMS practitioners.

NAEMT education emphasizes critical thinking skills to obtain the best outcomes for patients. We believe that EMS practitioners make the best decisions on behalf of their patients when given a sound foundation of key principles and evidence-based knowledge.

NAEMT education programs are developed by collaborative teams of clinicians, EMS educators and medical directors. Our teams review current publications relevant to our course content, and incorporate the latest research, newest techniques and innovative teaching approaches to provide our students with the best possible learning experience.

New programs and major revisions of current programs are field tested to ensure their relevancy and appropriateness. All course content is reviewed and updated at least once every four years to keep up with advances in the field and feedback from participants.

We are committed to this philosophy in developing and implementing all of our education programs. NAEMT education courses are accredited by the Commission on Accreditation for PreHospital Continuing Education (CAPCE). They also are recognized for recertification requirements by the National Registry of Emergency Medical Technicians (NREMT).

All students attending an NAEMT course are offered a one-year introductory membership into NAEMT.

All proceeds from NAEMT education are used to support the mission of the association.
