    ATLS Audit

    I've taken both. In my opinion, TNATC is a much better course for transport personnel. It's fantastic! And if you are looking to get a hand up on a flight job, I think they might take more notice of TNATC. Good luck!

    Physiological effects of Oxygen

    Air Medical Crews

    So as a completely unscientific sampling, I was wondering what is the general consensus / opinion you have of helicopter flight crews. Do you think they are the best of the best with aspirations of being one? Overused resource that wears too tight of flight suits? A bunch of prima donnas? Or...

    Well, official numbers from anyone is impossible because currently BCCTPC will not release that data to education institutions, which in my opinion is completely fine. Everything is by word of mouth from our course participants. So far, everyone we know of that has taken the FP-C or CCP-C exam...

    bachelors degree in paramedic

    I know at the school I work for we offer a bachelors in EMS. I know that some flight programs in our area give preference points for having a bachelors in EMS. We are currently working on a masters degree in EMS. Not sure how that will pan out, but I agree with the degree inflation in different...
