ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for prehospital trauma care. It is used as a state-of-the-art continuing education course — and as an essential curriculum in many paramedic, EMT and first-responder training programs.
These comprehensive courses are designed for providers who are first to evaluate and stabilize the trauma patient. The courses provide complete training in the skills needed for rapid assessment, resuscitation, stabilization and transportation of trauma patients.
