CRITICAL CARE TRANSPORT ACADEMY
THE CRITICAL CARE TRANSPORT ACADEMY is designed to prepare paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. This program attempts to bridge the gap between pre-hospital EMS and In-hospital care; resulting in a specialized provider who has both the knowledge of caring for critically ill patients and the ability to provide the highest level of care to all critically ill during transport. This class meets online for (7) SEVEN days (24 online modules). You can complete these modules at your own pace. However, it is highly recommended to start the online material AT LEAST 1-2 weeks PRIOR to the (6) Six "live" in-person instruction days. This curriculum is designed to provide the basic educational foundation required for any specialist transporting critical care patients. The CCTA online portion is divided into 24 modules, each of which has a specific instructional goal. The right equipment to demonstrate various critical care techniques is provided to enrich the learning. The required readings and the learning objectives are provided prior to class. Each lesson contains quizzes AND exams to help you understand the information.
