The Difficult Airway Course: EMS To Be Offered Through Authorized Training Centers World-Wide

FARMINGTON, Connecticut — First Airway, LLC, developers of The Difficult Airway Course: EMS and Fundamentals of Airway Management, is pleased to announce a new delivery model for these industry leading courses.

Beginning in 2014, The Difficult Airway Course: EMS and Fundamentals of Airway Management will be offered through Authorized Training Centers world-wide. Authorized Training Centers (ATCs) are able to independently deliver these courses using First Airway’s state-of-the-art, evidence-based curriculum and materials. This delivery method will make The Difficult Airway Course: EMS and Fundamentals of Airway Management accessible to more healthcare professionals.

The training center opportunity is open to paramedic and EMT initial training programs and continuing education providers nationally and internationally. Authorized Training Centers must meet several criteria, including: accreditation by a recognized state, national or international training authority, and an excellent reputation for EMS education and practice. ATCs must also appoint a Local Course Director and have the infrastructure, resources and competencies to run the courses successfully.

“We are excited to introduce this delivery model for our courses,” said Darren Braude, MD, EMT-P, Medical Director of First Airway. “Making The Difficult Airway Course: EMS available to Authorized Training Centers will greatly expand the reach of the courses, creating more opportunities for EMS professionals to receive this vital training. We are equally excited that the courses will be offered throughout the world.”

“As the first in the state [Massachusetts] to achieve CoAEMSP accreditation, we felt that becoming an Authorized Training Center for The Difficult Airway Course: EMS was the next logical step;” said Danielle Thomas, Director of Pro EMS Center for MEDICS, New England’s first Authorized Training Center. “The Difficult Airway Course: EMS has a reputation as the definitive EMS airway course, and we look forward to using it to provide our students with the best in airway management education.”
