Transport Professional Advanced Trauma Course (TPATC) is a two day educational experience focused on care of the trauma patient during initial resuscitation and transport. Employing didactic and practical methods of learning will allow you to:

  • Describe the professional responsibilities associated with patient transport.
  • Identify the importance of early recognition of high risk trauma patients.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills necessary for the assessment and management of the multiple trauma victim in the field and interfacility settings.
  • List management priorities in care of the multiple trauma victim.

NOTE: TPATC does not certify any person to perform skills or procedures taught in the course. Verification will be valid for four years*.

What Are the Teaching Methods?

This is a hybrid course. All TPATC didactic lectures must be completed online prior to attendance in the course. Proof of completion is required upon course check-in.

The practical portion of the course includes skills stations on invasive procedures, airway management, scenarios and patient assessments. In addition, the course includes various review sessions, safety scenarios and a practical and written exam. All content is taught by qualified, trained transport professional instructors.

 

DISCLAIMER: TPATC is a two day advanced trauma professional course open to all transport personnel providing direct patient care during transport by ground or air. A minimum of six months transport experience is recommended prior to enrolling in a TPATC.  Successful achievement of TPATC provider status requires preparation and study as well as documented completion of the Online TPATC lectures.  ASTNA is committed to providing these materials no later than 30 days prior to the course.  Those students enrolling in TPATC less than 6 weeks in advance may not receive course materials in time to adequately prepare.  All course participants receive continuing education contact hours.

 

*There is a six month grace period from the time your provider status expires before you need to re-verify. Reverification can be done through the Online TPATC or through the 2 day TPATC.
