in Bangkok, Thailand, this 2019. Following last year's successful training, this year will focus on a new program which combines CRaMA (Commercial Repatriation and Medical Assistance Introduction) and AmCRM (Aeromedical Crew Resource Management) for 3 days, followed by FL (Foundation Level), a 6 days program.
The CCAT course was first introduced in the UK for more than a decade and is internationally recognised among the transport and retrieval industry. This year, we have achieved Educational Credit with Aviation Business Management of Rangsit University in Thailand.
CCAT Foundation Level
is designed to give a special opportunity for existing and potential professional to gain, update, refresh and exchange knowledge and skills in transferring patients around the globe, and to achieve a deep understanding and professional approach to patient’s transfer with the guidance of experts in aviation physiology, retrieval medicine, intensive care, emergency medicine and prehospital care throughout the 6 days course.
The course is aimed for doctors, nurses and paramedics who are ready or preparing to work as flight medical crew, and for other health care professionals who wish to work in the patient air transport system. The course will provide a thorough training in aeromedical transport of ill & injured, retrieval medicine, repatriation and aspects of aerospace medicine concerning medical air travel.
The course addresses relevant issues of the special physical, physiological and psychological stresses which are important in the various transport environments, and describes the conditions which are susceptible during transfer by land and by air and how patients can be safely and efficiently carried. The course includes practical and interactive professional visits.
