Critical Care & Flight Specialist course


Our Critical Care & Flight Specialist course prepares you to give the best & advanced (invasive) treatment on scene or during transport – by road of by air – to or between hospitals.

This is the first & only IBSC approved review course in the Benelux!

The training staff are all experienced critical care and prehospital professionals. You learn to do a patient assessment and give invasive treatments outside the hospital. You also get tips & tricks, straight from the street.

If you want you can do your IBSC examen to obtain your International certification as critical care and/or flight paramedic.

Why follow this course?

We strongly believe that a well trained, fully equipped, well staffed and a confident transport team has a huge impact on the outcome of the patient.

We get this with a comprehensive training and an examination with certification.

By combining theoretical lectures and practical skill labs with scenario’s during the course we give you a comprehensive theoretical background, but also solid practical skills. Self-study is mandatory.
