Course Description

This 16 hour EMS continuing education course prepares first responders to manage trauma patients. Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is recognized around the world as the leading Continuing Education program for prehospital emergency trauma care, per the National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT). The course was created in recognition of the real need in EMS education for additional training in the handling of trauma patients.

The course delivers the latest standards in prehospital trauma care using lectures and dynamic hands-on skill sessions such as rapid extrication, pediatric immobilization and more. It is designed to enhance the knowledge and skill of first responders, EMTs, paramedics, physicians, nurses, and other licensed health care professionals.

If you successfully complete the course you can earn 16 hours of CEUs of instructor-led credit for nurses, paramedics, and EMTs and a PHTLS provider certification valid for 4 years.
