Overview

 

The ATLS course provides a framework for the management 

of  the injured patient.  The target audience is doctors 

in hospitals emergency settings with a training focus on 

effectively assessing and managing multiple trauma patients.  

Because trauma care is a rapidly advancing subject, the ATLS 

course is constantly evolving to the most current practices.  

The course allows those treating trauma patients to keep up-

to-date in the knowledge and skills critical to providing care 

for trauma patients.  

The ATLS course includes instruction in these skills:

• 

The rapid and accurate assessment of  a patient’s condition

• 

The resuscitation and stabilization of  a patient according to priority

• 

How to determine if  a patient’s needs exceed a facility’s capabilities

• 

How to arrange appropriately for a patient’s definitive care

• 

How to ensure that optimum care is provided

ATLS is designed for both the first-time student and for those needing recertification.  During the 2-day 

ATLS course, participants learn the medical core content in an interactive format, with hands-on skill 

sessions in simulated trauma settings. There is also a 1-day refresher course for those with current ATLS 

cards needing recertification.   

ATLS certification is valid for four years from course completion date.
