Course Overview

The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program (CCEMTP) is designed to provide a basic educational foundation while preparing Paramedics and Nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team. The curriculum bridges the gap between pre-hospital and the hospital critical care environment.
Participants will gain an understanding of the special needs of critical patients during transport, become familiar with the purpose and mechanisms of hospital procedures and equipment and develop the skills to maintain the stability of hospital equipment and procedures during transport.
This course is divided into five sections (Preparatory-Critical Care Environment, Medical, Trauma, Airway Management, Special Considerations) each with a list of learning objectives and declaratives to assist the students throughout the class.

Students with 100% attendance will be evaluated with a comprehensive written exam at the end of the course. Upon successful completion, the student will receive a renewable certificate from UMBC valid for three years.
