The AEMT courses are presented both in the UK and around the world, with locations for the rest of 2017 including Loughborough, Aberdeen, Singapore, and Dubai.
AEMT lecturers are highly qualified engineers, including the AEMT's lead lecturer, Dr Martin Killeen.
The AEMT courses ensure personnel have a good understanding of the subject and are also well versed in the practical aspects.
The AEMT has just released two video clips, filmed at the recent Loughborough training course.
In New York State, an AEMT is defined as "an [EMT] who has satisfactorily completed an advance course of training approved by the state council under regulations pursuant to section three thousand two of [the Public Health Law].
Further, the New York State minimum staffing standards for the majority of ambulance services requires only an EMT--and not an AEMT--to be on staff when responding to a call, (214) leaving the potential that in some instances, a police officer could accidentally request that an EMT, and not an AEMT, perform a blood draw on a DWI suspect.
The first group is authorized to perform unsupervised blood draws on DWI suspects, and consists of physicians, registered professional nurses, registered physician's assistants, certified nurse practitioners, and AEMTs.
Shea's Law expands the class of medical professionals who may perform an unsupervised blood draw with the addition of two medical professionals: certified nurse practitioners ("CNPs") and AEMTs.
The addition of AEMTs to the list of persons who may perform unsupervised blood draws is also a positive change; however, not extending this to emergency medical technicians ("EMT") leaves open the possibility that some DWI blood draws will still be suppressed.
Ian Atkinson, publishing director of Plant & Works Engineering, official media partner for the Awards, concluded: "With the ongoing necessity for businesses to adopt better maintenance practices to take advantage of the onset of the smart manufacturing era, the inaugural AEMT Awards will undoubtedly help raise the profile for this critical sector and give much needed foresight and awareness of the opportunities and solutions available.
These views were underpinned by Gary Downes, managing director of Solutions in IT, and President of the AEMT, who commented: "We thought it would be good to put something back, and help service engineers promote their services.
The online entry process couldn't be easier, so anyone wishing to play their part in highlighting engineering excellence should visit the AEMT Awards website--www.
