Advanced Emergency Medical Technician (A-EMT) Training

Updated July 18, 2014

The 2014-2015 sessions of the A-EMT classes have not been scheduled yet.

We are currently waiting on course approval from the State of Tennessee – Division of EMS. Once this has been completed and we have been approved as a teaching location for the Advanced EMT course, we will open the 2014-2015 class up for registration. The estimated date for opening registration is October 1, with classes beginning in late October. Again, this is contingent on approval.

We appreciate your patience as we complete the final steps toward opening registration.

We will update the website as more information becomes available.

If you would like to be notified by email once the class has been scheduled, please go to the link below and enter your contact information. When registration is about to be opened, an email will be sent to all who have requested information via this form.

Basic Information about the Class:

Due to the limited number of slots in the classes, seats are filled on a first-come, first-served basis. Full payment is due at the time of registration – NO exceptions. Payment by credit/debit card is advised. Payment by check must be received within 5 business days of registration or your registration will be purged.

Class Schedules

There are three sessions available for this program. We offer a Monday/Wednesday evening class (6pm-9pm) as well as a Tuesday/Thursday evening (6pm-9pm) class. We also offer an accelerated weekend session that meets on Friday evenings (6pm-9pm) and Saturdays (8am-3pm).

Classes will be held in the training room of MTSU's University College at 855 West College Street in Murfreesboro, Tennessee.


  • Must be 18 years or older (as of the 1st night of class)
  • Have an academic high school diploma or GED certificate; specialized education or Certificates of Attendance are NOT allowed
  • Shall not have been convicted of a felony

Course Information

The textbooks and liability are included in the price of the course. Uniform shirts and pants must be purchased by the student. Please do not purchase uniforms until instructors give the specifications. A drug screen and a background check will be REQUIRED before beginning clinical rotations. You will be given instructions on where to have this done on the first night of class. These will be done at the expense of the student. You must have a valid driver’s license before beginning clinical rotations.

Students who successfully complete the course will be eligible to take the State of Tennessee A-EMT certification exam. In order to be eligible to take the State of Tennessee A-EMT certification exam, you must not have any felony or misdemeanor convictions. A second background check will be required.

The A-EMT program at MTSU is a non-credit program. You do NOT have to apply for admission to MTSU. This also means that you will not receive any credit toward a college diploma upon successfully completing the course. Because it is a non-credit program, traditional student financial aid (Pell Grants, Stafford Loans, Hope Scholarships, etc.) cannot be used to pay for the class.

The goal of the class is to prepare you for certification as an A-EMT.

This class is eligible for Montgomery GI Bill veteran's benefits. However, you must pay for the class at the time of registration and then be reimbursed by your veteran's benefits.
