Prehospital Trauma Life Support (PHTLS) is the gold standard continuing education programme for prehospital emergency trauma care. It is a pre requisite in many countries for Paramedic registration and required learning for those working in private practice.
This challenging course is delivered by Immediate Care Paramedics' experienced and supportive instructors. Designed to suit the needs of experienced multidisciplinary emergency health care professionals looking to extend their knowledge and skills in the recognition and management of trauma patients of various ages, stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs.
Our Instructors facilitate candidates learning through evidence-based lectures, hands-on multifaceted advanced skills stations, and realistic moulaged patient trauma scenarios. If you're looking to develop yourself, consolidate learning, gain confidence in a supportive environment or want to learn new skills, then this is the course for you.
Successful course candidates will be awarded the internationally recognised PHTLS Provider qualification. Recognised worldwide as the leading PreHospital Trauma Course, you will join an exclusive group of individuals who have demonstrated their commitment to managing and treating patients of all ages during traumatic emergencies.
Before the course, you may have a desire to become a PHTLS Instructor. Immediate Care Paramedics are always looking to expand our group of educators. Should you wish to be considered for an instructor recommendation, please identify yourself to the Course Director or your Group Instructor at registration, where we will be delighted to expand upon the process and its requirements.
Our Instructors also monitor your performance and progress during the course and may approach you directly to enquire if you would consider being assessed for an instructor recommendation. As an Instructor nominee, you will be assessed to demonstrate the essential attributes and attitudes that we uphold as an Authorised NAEMT Training Institution.
