Critical Care Transport
January 27 - February 10, 2014
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
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.
