The Critical Care Paramedic Certificate is designed to prepare Wisconsin paramedics to function as critical care transport team members. Critically ill or injured patients requiring transport between facilities need a different level of care from hospital or emergency field patients. This certificate provides students with knowledge of the special assessment techniques and needs of the critical care patient, the ability to operate and troubleshoot critical care transport equipment and develops the skills necessary to maintain the stability of the critical care patient during transport. This course follows the Wisconsin curriculum for license endorsement as a Critical Care Paramedic.
While acceptance to Northcentral Technical College will not be denied based on a criminal background, this program requires a background check for placement into clinical sites or field experiences. These checks could prevent students from completing all course requirements necessary for graduation, gaining certification and finding employment.
