CCT Quarterly Testing
State of Michigan SCT and CCT programs were designed to address a growing need for qualified specialists in inter-facility transfer. This program is specifically approved by the State of Michigan to serve the needs of critically ill or injured patients requiring inter-facility transport. While traditional paramedic education programs teach essential skills and provide entry-level knowledge and competence for the management of patients in the pre-hospital setting, these training programs do not address skills and knowledge required to manage critical patients in need of life-sustaining advanced care. This curriculum will assist the SCT Candidate in developing necessary skills and knowledge to manage critical patients during a high risk transfer while standardizing training in inter-facility transport.
The new curriculum focuses on Section 8-15 of the Interfacility Transport Protocol and requires working knowledge of pharmacodynamics, airway care, anatomy and physiology. The curriculum was subject to peer review by the State and physician approval by our medical directors.
SCT Candidates must be a currently licensed State of Michigan Paramedic with a recommended minimum of one year of experience as a Paramedic, with current certifications in BLS, ACLS, PALS, and PHTLS.
