Critical Care Transport
The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport (CCEMTP) course was designed in response to the growing need for qualified specialists in the area of critical care inter-facility transfer. It helps to prepare
paramedics and nurses to serve with competence and confidence in meeting the needs of critical care patients undergoing inter-facility transports.
While traditional paramedic education programs teach essential skills and provide a knowledge base for the management of patients in the pre-hospital setting, these training programs frequently do not teach
the skills and knowledge necessary to manage critical patients between hospitals, specialty referral centers, and extended care facilities
The CCEMTP program will assist the clinician in developing the necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high risk transfer. Essentially, CCEMTP is "post graduate education" for the
paramedic or nurse that attempts to standardize training and level of care in inter-facility transport. To view complete information about CCEMTP, follow the link to UMBC’s website.
CCEMTP is open to any Paramedic, RN, RT, or MD who has worked in that capacity for a recommended one (1) year. Current CPR, ACLS, ITLS, PHTLS, TNCC or TNATC, and PALS, PEPP, PPC or ENPC is required. Copies of your certification cards must be submitted with your registration. Failure to do so will prohibit registration for the course.
