    Welcome on board Todd. It appears your quite involved, good! I'm interested in what a CCEMT-P is compared to the Nationally Registered Paramedic? Is that from PA? I'll look forward to your input on Terrorism and all that "modern-day-fire-service-worry"

    If we stand united.... We will never fall.

    CCEMT-P is a certification I got from the University of Maryland at Baltimore County. It is Critical Care Transport, but used to be known as Critical Care Paramedic when I took it years ago. It is a two week intensive class that focuses on the care of patients on such things as Intra-Aortic Balloon pumps, vents, exotic drips, etc. The pharmacology is way extended past standard stuff, and included paralytics when it began (which is now pretty commonplace). Excellent course. Had a blast!!
    It is a certification that is not really well-recognized across the U.S. since it is such a niche type of training class. But private EMS folks and aero-transport crews love it.

    Welcome from another new poster. Our service was the first in W.V. to use cct trucks. We've ran ,I don't know exactly, but a bunch of medics through the course. I think the curriculum originally came from Univ. of Maryland, probably same course as you. We currently run 3 person crews on our cct trucks, emt,emt-p and rn. The emt-p and rn do the Healthnet IV fixed wing flights also. Still on waiting list to get into class, still just a normal emt-p. Look forward to hearing you on forums, anxious to see similiarity of services. Look us up on Welcome and Happy New Year.
