WHY ITLS?

COURSES

Courses-ITLS.png

ITLS courses give the student the knowledge and hands-on skills to take better care of trauma patients. ITLS stresses rapid assessment, appropriate intervention and identification of immediate life threats. The ITLS framework for rapid, appropriate and effective trauma care is a global standard that works in any situation.

HANDS-ON LEARNING

ITLS courses combine classroom learning and hands-on skills stations. They also challenge the student with scenario assessment stations where learning is put to work in simulated trauma situations. ITLS courses are designed, managed and delivered by course directors, coordinators and instructors experienced in EMS, prehospital care and the ITLS approach.

COMPREHENSIVE MANUAL

Each ITLS course includes a comprehensive manual sent to the student in advance. The manual enhances learning experience with in-depth content, photos and illustrations. ITLS manuals are written by trauma care experts and edited by the ITLS Editorial Board. After the course, the student can refer to the manual as a valuable recap of what has been learned.

INTERNATIONAL TRAUMA STANDARD

ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for prehospital trauma care, and is not only taught as continuing education course, but is also used as a textbook in many Paramedic, EMT, and first responder training programs.
