ITLS – International Trauma Life Support Class

What to expect at an ITLS course.

The ITLS course is hands-on and intensive. The primary purpose of the ITLS course is to provide students with the fundamental knowledge and experience necessary to get the trauma patient from scene to surgery in the best possible condition. The ITLS course focuses on the skills necessary to recognize mechanisms of injury; perform an organized, time-efficient assessment; prioritize and perform critical interventions; and appropriately package and transport the trauma patient.

A major focus of the course is the identification of conditions that require immediate transport (“load and go”) in order to save the patient. Lifesaving techniques are taught or reviewed in practical exercises. Newly developed equipment is provided, when possible, to allow the students to become familiar with state-of-the-art techniques and equipment.

Although the course is designed for the prehospital phase of EMS, it is also useful to medical students, emergency medicine residents, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, and physician assistants interested in trauma care.

ITLS is an approved provider by the Commission on Accreditation of Pre-Hospital Continuing Education (CAPCE) [formerly CECBEMS] and all ITLS courses are CAPCE certified.
