The Critical Care Emergency Medical Transport Program (CCEMTP) is designed to prepare
paramedics and nurses to function as members of a critical care transport team.
The program attempts to bridge the gap between pre-hospital and hospital care. The
result is a specialized care provider who has both an understanding of aspects of
patient care and the ability to provide the highest level of care to critical patients
Participants will gain an understanding of the special needs of critical patients
during transport, become familiar with the purpose and mechanisms of hospital procedures
and equipment, and develop the skills to maintain the stability of hospital equipment
and procedures during transport.
The CCEMTP Program was designed by UMBC to provide the basic educational foundation
required for specialists transporting critical care patients. In addition, it may
serve as a springboard for those institutions looking to expand into critical care.
Classes meet 8:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. Specific schedule information will be provided
at the first class session. The schedule for this class is tentative and is always
Location: This class will be held at the Mabee Training Center, 3108 S. Great
Southwest Parkway, Grand Prairie, Texas 75052.
This continuing education activity is approved by UMBC, an organization accredited by the Continuing Education Coordinating Board for Emergency Medical Services (CECBEMS).
