Event Type



This class is supported by a grant from the Oregon Dept of Transportation/DMV Traffic Safety Office to strengthen the care provided by emergency responders to vehicle crash victims on Oregon roadways. From this emergency responder training, participants are better prepared to provide emergency care to victims of road crashes; reduce vehicle crash scene times; and support the EMS work force by acquiring CE that is applicable to maintaining their EMS licenses.


This is the 9th edition course. The mission of PHTLS is to promote excellence in trauma patient management by all providers involved in the delivery of prehospital care.  PHTLS is developed by NAEMT in cooperation with the American College of Surgeons’ Committee on Trauma. The Committee provides the medical direction and content oversight for the PHTLS program. PHTLS courses improve the quality of trauma care and decrease mortality. The program is based on a philosophy stressing the treatment of the multi-system trauma patient as a unique entity with specific needs. PHTLS promotes critical thinking as the foundation for providing quality care. It is based on the belief that, given a good fund of knowledge and key principles, EMS practitioners are capable of making reasoned decisions regarding patient care. The course utilizes the internationally recognized PHTLS textbook.


ONLY OREGON-LICENSED EMERGENCY RESPONDERS THAT ATTEND TO ROADWAY CRASHES IN RURAL/FRONTIER AREAS CAN REGISTER WITH THE GRANT-SUPPORTED $50 COURSE FEE. Anyone that does not meet that criteria can contact us regarding an alternate fee arrangement to participate.


PHTLS for First Responders (PHTLS-FR) is an 8-hour classroom course that takes the world-class trauma care content from the 9th edition of PHTLS and delivers it in a style that is relevant to and accessible by first responders, including emergency medical responders (EMR), firefighters, rescue personnel and law enforcement officers. Covering life-saving interventions such as hemorrhage control and airway management, this course teaches critical trauma concepts, demonstrates skills, and walks students through potential patient scenarios. Course materials include a student manual, providing students with access to these important concepts long after the course is over. Upon successful completion of this course, students receive a certificate of completion, a wallet card good for 4 years and 8 hours of CAPCE credit.


The NAEMT requires participants to have the current 9th edition PHTLS-FR Provider Course Manual. They are shipped to all participants that complete the registration process.
