Transport Professional Advanced Trauma Course (TPATC) is a three day educational experience focused on care of the trauma patient during initial resuscitation and transport. Employing didactic and practical methods of learning will allow you to:

  • Describe the professional responsibilities associated with patient transport.
  • Identify the importance of early recognition of high risk trauma patients.
  • Demonstrate knowledge and skills necessary for the assessment and management of the multiple trauma victim in the field and interfacility settings.
  • List management priorities in care of the multiple trauma victim.

NOTE: TPATC does not certify any person to perform skills or procedures taught in the course. Verification will be valid for four years*.

What Topics Are For Me, the Transport Professional?

The didactic portion of the course is designed to enhance cognitive knowledge of the pathophysiology, assessment and management of trauma.

Course topics include:

  • Transport Physiology
  • Safety
  • Neurological Trauma
  • Shock
  • Thoracic and Abdominal Trauma
  • Trauma in Pregnancy
  • Pediatric Trauma
  • Legal Aspects of Transport
  • Trauma Due to Burns
  • Airway and Ventilatory Management
  • Crisis Management

What Are the Teaching Methods?

The practical portion of the course includes skills stations on invasive procedures, chest and c-spine x-ray interpretation, airway management and patient assessment. All skills stations and transport specific lectures are taught by qualified transport professional instructors.

DISCLAIMER: TPATC is a three day advanced trauma professional course open to all transport personnel providing direct patient care during transport by ground or air. A minimum of six months transport experience is recommended prior to enrolling in a TPATC.  Successful achievement of TPATC provider status requires preparation and study.  ASTNA is committed to providing these materials no later than 30 days prior to the course.  Those students enrolling in TPATC less than 6 weeks in advance may not receive course materials in time to adequately prepare.  All course participants receive continuing education contact hours.


*There is a six month grace period from the time your provider status expires before you need to re-verify.
