Critical Care Transport Online Review Course Overview

A comprehensive online course with 22 interactive modules, scheduled webinars, various video and pdf materials and many tests, scenarios, and mock exams to help students get prepared for the Critical Care Paramedic and Flight Paramedic board certification exams.

The full course takes approximately  70 hrs to complete, including at least 20 hrs self-tests. This could be completed on your own pace: the subscription is valid for one year. Health care provider (preferably paramedic) background is essential but no previous critical care experience is necessary, as the interactive online modules will build up the foundations from absolute beginner to expert level.

Webinars are scheduled to practice 12 lead ECG, arterial blood gas (ABG) interpretation scenarios, mechanical ventilation scenarios and practicing the evaluation of haemodynamic parameters (CVP, CO, PCWP, SVR, etc).

​This course is approved by the International Board for Specialty Certifications.​

The course will prepare the student to pass the Board Certification Exam; further clinical and non-technical skills, as well as hands-on teaching, is also provided separately by COROM at its Classroom in Malta and its optional clinical placements.
