Critical Care Transport Preparatory Course

The YNHH Center for EMS Critical Care Transport class is designed to prepare paramedics and RNs to be a part of both ground and flight critical care teams. Curriculum is geared towards preparing the student for the board certification examinations for CCP-C and FP-C. This course will be a combination of distributive, in-class, practical, and clinical learning.

Over the course of eight weeks, students will have weekly online assignments including web-based interactive lectures. Once a week, students will have the opportunity to meet in-person at our campus at 77 Willow St. in New Haven for case studies, practical skills and high-fidelity simulations.

Program Schedule

Students will meet in-person on Fridays from Sept. 16, 2022, to Nov. 4, 2022 from 9 am to 5 pm. Each week there will be online coursework to be completed prior to class.

Clinical Rotations

Students will have the opportunity to complete both clinical rotations and critical care ride shifts at Yale New Haven Health’s facilities and affiliate locations.

As CCT-Paramedics, their primary role will be in the inter-facility transport of patients who require and/or are dependent on some form of already established critical care and treatment. Students in the course are already licensed paramedics and generally have a minimum of two years’ experience working in the Emergency Medical or Critical Care Field. Upon completion of the program, the students will be prepared to test for the International Board of Specialty Certifications.

Tuition and Enrollment

Tuition for the CCT-Paramedic course is $1,200 which includes text books. It does not, however, cover the cost to test with the certification. For more information on upcoming classes and to enroll, email Jonathon Depino.

This is an educational program and completion is not indicative of employment as a critical care paramedic.
