PHTLS CERTIFICATION

This is a PHTLS certification program (taught in English) designed for those interested in pursuing a career as a doctor, nurse, emergency medical responder (EMR), firefighter, rescue personnel and law enforcement officer. PHTLS stands for Pre-Hospitalization Trauma and Life Support. PHTLS is a certification recognized by National Association of Emergency Medical Technicians (NAEMT) and is a great grad school candidacy and employability booster. Pre-hospitalization training includes health care services performed prior to arrival to a hospital including: securing the zone of an accident, assessing the risk of accident victims, stabilizing a victim's neck, extraction from a vehicle, and transporting accident victims through an obstacle course. This is a physically demanding, fun and highly engaging course. Program participants will learn about teamwork, leadership and learn to empathize with victims.
