The TPATC Advanced Provider course, a fast-paced, one-day class, is geared toward those advanced transport practitioners who wish to obtain additional information and skills related to trauma.
The TPATC Advanced Provider (AP) course includes a brief review of basic Provider content as well as case studies on geriatric trauma, delayed trauma transport, and disaster/mass casualty incidents. Skills stations include advanced airway management scenarios, cranial CT interpretation, and invasive skills. Written and practical exams covering basic Provider and Advanced Provider content must also be completed successfully in order to achieve verification and/or re-verification as a TPATC 'Advanced Provider'.
The course is open to experienced transport providers (a minimum of at least 2 years transport experience) who are comfortable and competent with the knowledge and skills presented in the TPATC Provider curriculum. Transport practitioners with less experience and exposure to trauma care and practice are encouraged to take the 3 day Provider course prior to attempting verification as a TPATCAdvanced Provider. Current TPATC providers can renew* their verification by successfully completing the TPATC AP course or by retaking the 3 day Provider course.
*There is a six month grace period from the time your provider status expires before you need to re-verify.
