Foundations in Critical Care

The College of Remote and Offshore Medicine Foundation offers the Foundations in Critical Care course which is part of the Higher Diploma of Remote Practice Paramedic. It consists of online learning and one week of foundational learning.

  • Online Content: Moodle based, self paced learning.
  • Classroom Content: Foundations of Critical Care

This course is accredited for 10 college credits through the European Credit Transfer Scheme. This equals 1/6th of a college school year. These credits can be transferred worldwide. 

The IBSC exams for Flight Paramedic and Critical Care Paramedic can be booked through the IBSC website. These exams can be taken worldwide at any ProMetric testing centre. Click here to start the process

We have learned in the last few courses that the chance for passing these exams increases when the exams are taken two or three weeks after taking this course. Therefore, we no longer offer the IBSC exams at the end of the classroom training. 

We suggest that you arrange to take the course once you have taken a couple of weeks to review your classroom notes and the online review content.

Update for Autumn Semester 2020:

   The College is designing a Masters in Science in Prehospital Critical Care. This two year course will cover advanced concepts of critical care specifically needed for the advanced practitioner working in remote, austere and resource-poor environments.
