SGTC EMT students participate in International Trauma Life Support Class

July 5, 2016

South Georgia Technical College’s Advanced Emergency Medical Technology (EMT) students from the Cordele and Americus campuses recently teamed up with the Advanced EMT students of Darton State College to participate in the (ITLS) International Trauma Life Support class.       The class included two days of classroom learning, hands-on skills stations, and assessment stations that put learning to work in simulated trauma scenarios.       ITLS is accepted internationally as the standard training course for pre-hospital trauma care. Not only are courses taught as a continuing education option, but they are also used as essential curricula in many paramedic, EMT and first responder training programs.       ITLS courses give the student the knowledge and hands-on skills to take better care of trauma patients. ITLS stresses rapid assessment, appropriate intervention and identification of immediate life threats. The ITLS framework for rapid, appropriate and effective trauma care is a global standard that works in any situation.       South Georgia Technical College will be registering for its next EMT class for the fall semester on the Cordele Campus on July 14th and then again on August 11th. Classes will begin August 15th. For more information contact: SGTC EMT Instructor Matt Hunt at 229-271-5189 or
