The goal of the PALS course is to aid the pediatric healthcare provider in developing the knowledge and skills necessary to efficiently and effectively manage critically ill infants and children.

Gives healthcare providers tools to escape from or if need be, defend against, violent encounters. The course is based on sound and legally defensible self-defense techniques and strategies to properly document violent patient encounters.

The goal of the ACLS course is to improve outcomes for adult patients of cardiac arrest and other cardiopulmonary emergencies through early recognition and interventions by high-performance teams. 

Designed for emergency personnel that may be involved in situations where special tactics and/or immediate trauma management is required, immediate transport is not available and dangerous environmental conditions exist.

Tactical Casualty Care for Law Enforcement and First Responders is no longer offered via NAEMT. Denver Health Paramedics - EMS Education will continue to offer this training with our course Trauma Care for Law Enforcement and First Responders. This course still continues to satisfy the Colorado P.O.S.T training requirements.

This one day (8 hour) course teaches public safety responders (police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and other first responders) the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder's life until EMS responders can safely enter a tactical scene.

This course was developed in collaboration with Denver Health Medical Center's EMS Education Department and the Denver Police Department's Metro/SWAT unit. It teaches public safety responders (police officers, firefighters, emergency medical technicians (EMTs) and other first responders) the basic medical care interventions that will help save an injured responder's life until EMS responders can safely enter a tactical scene.

This course combines principles of PHTLS and Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), with the training provided to military medics by all branches of our Armed Services. It is consistent with the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines, and meets the recommendations of the Hartford Consensus Documentation Improving Survival from Active Shooter Events.

Course participants will learn life-saving medical actions such as bleeding control with a tourniquet, bleeding control with gauze packs or topical hemostatic agents, and opening an airway to allow a casualty to breathe.

Upon completion of the course, participants will:

  • Understand the rationale for immediate steps for hemorrhage control (including external hemorrhage control, direct pressure and wound packing, early use of a tourniquet for severe hemorrhage, internal hemorrhage control by rapid evacuation, and transportation to major hospital/trauma center.
  • Demonstrate the appropriate application of a tourniquet to the arm and leg
  • Describe the progressive strategy for controlling hemorrhage
  • Describe appropriate airway control techniques and devices
  • Demonstrate the correct application of a topical hemostatic dressing (combat gauze)
  • Recognize the tactically relevant indicators for shock
