The Education for Facilitating Emergency Critical Care Transport (EFFECT) Course is designed to build upon the paramedic's foundational knowledge to refine and develop the necessary skills and critical thinking required to manage high-risk critical care interfacility transports.  Students will be immersed in a dynamic learning environment designed to prepare the graduate to achieve their Critical Care Paramedic (CCP-C) or Flight Paramedic Certification (FP-C) from the International Board of Specialty Certification (IBSC).

Students will develop advanced assessment techniques, including foundational knowledge for diagnostic and hemodynamic monitoring and critical care pharmacology to manage the critically ill or injured patient.  Advanced education on Anatomy and Physiology will include a focus on cellular metabolism, perfusion, and homeostasis, including acid/base balance, and pathophysiology of disease. Candidates will explore resuscitation strategies for the peri-arrest and post-arrest patients.  Core curriculum includes devoted blocks for special patient populations to include high-risk obstetrics, infants and neonate, and pediatrics.

This program consists of 20 weeks of live, virtual lectures along with assigned work using the Ascend Learning Management System.  A companion simulation course is currently under development for launch in 2024.
