This is a 4-day training and exam preparation program that prepares students to sit for the Flight Paramedic Certification (FP-C) and Critical Care Paramedic Certification (CCP-C) exams created by the Board for Critical Care Transport Paramedic Certification (BCCTPC). This course is designed specifically to teach critical care concepts in an easy to understand format. Although intended for paramedics and nurses, the course is open to anyone, although the course will not address concepts below the level of a paramedic.
The instructor and staff have a first time pass rate over 80% and an overall pass rate greater than 95%, compared to the national average of 62%. This is accomplished using relevant and to the point instruction. Our course provides insight and clarity to complex critical care medical concepts and procedures. The training is approved for 40 hours of continuing education by the BCCTPC and will also apply toward 24 “Additional Education” hours required by the NREMT. Current FP-C and CCP-C car holders may attend this course to meet BCCTPC educational requirements to maintain certification as a critical paramedic.
Why is this course so effective?
Simple- we stay on point and focus on helping you pass critical care exams. Each student will take two full-length comprehensive examinations based on the official FP-C exam blueprint. You will also take daily quizzes to help you prepare to pass critical care medicine exams.
Who are the instructors?
All primary instructors are Emergency Medicine Physician Assistants (PA-C) with extensive backgrounds in Aeromedicine. They are also Nationally Registered Paramedics (NRP) that are Flight Paramedic Certified (FP-C). Assistant instructors are USSOCOM Advanced Tactical Paramedics, Nationally Registered Paramedics (NRP), Flight Paramedic Certified (FP-C), and are formally trained flight instructors. All of our instructors have significant clinical and combat experience.
This course is more expensive than others, why?
Most critical care review courses are 2 days long, ours is 4 days. Also, we are the only course in the nation that uses Aeromedical Physician Assistants as primary instructors. We focus on educating adult professionals using our depth of clinical knowledge, experience, and expertise. You will benefit from our teaching methods!
How long do I have to enroll?
All enrollments and course fees are due no later than 7 days prior to the beginning of the course. Enrollment is completed by purchasing a registered spot through our online store.
Does my course enrollment fee include a BCCTPC proctored FP-C or CCP-C exam?
No. The cost of taking the certification exam is the responsibility of the student.
Can I miss any lectures?
Yes, however there will not be any make-up sessions for material covered in your absence. WE WANT YOU TO PASS, and will work with you if there are schedule conflicts.
Is there a minimum or maximum number of students?
Yes. Minimum 15, maximum 25.
Do I need any additional materials for the course or to prepare for the exam?
Through years of development and experience we have created a course that contains all information needed to prepare for the FP-C and CCP-C exams.

Does this prepare RNs to take the CFRN exam?

These hours can also be applied for Paramedic recertification through the National Registry of EMTs (NREMT).
