Advanced Trauma Life Support Course

Developed by the American College of Surgeons, this workshop is offered four times a year and teaches doctors, nurses, medical residents, and EMTs to assess and manage trauma cases through:

  • Practical lectures
  • Skill stations

Trauma Nurse Core Course

This 16-hour course and an eight-hour re-certification course is offered four times a year and at other times at partner hospitals by request. Both use a standardized curriculum. The course is for:

  • Trauma and emergency nurses with at least six months of experience
  • Nurses with little emergency experience who want knowledge and hands-on experience at psychomotor skill stations

All participants must be registered nurses. Attendees get CECHs (continuing education contact hours) for attending.
