Course Description

The ITLS (International Trauma Life Support) Basic Provider course is designed specifically for healthcare providers who are the first to respond to trauma patients. Hands-on skills necessary for rapid assessment, resuscitation, treatment, stabilization and transportation of trauma patients are covered.

The course combines online-managed self-study of theoretical concepts with mandatory classroom days which include lecture and practical components. This course is short but demanding—be prepared to complete pre-course work leading up to the first in-person class. Note: We recommend that you register at least 14 days before the course start date. Registration for this course closes seven days prior to course start date.
