“Emergency Health Care Education by Emergency Health Care Professionals”

Welcome to Pacific Emergency Medical Training Inc.

PEMT is a team of pre-hospital care providers and educators who are passionate about providing the best trauma care education possible.   Our instructional staff is made up of paramedics and military personnel who are veterans of Canadian Armed Force’s operations.

Based out of Greater Vancouver and serving all of British Columbia, Pacific Emergency Medical Training Inc provides trauma care education through two main program streams:

International Trauma Life Support:

ITLS is the world standard of trauma care, used internationally by 37 nations and by the vast majority of NATO armed forces.  PEMT instructors have experience teaching ITLS to military personnel, to BC Ambulance paramedics, to members of Search and Rescue Teams, and to the general public.  At PEMT we are proud to offer the following two ITLS courses:

  • ITLS Basic Provider Course:  This 16 hour course is targeted toward students who already possess advanced first aid training (i.e.  OFA-3, First Responder, Emergency Medical Responder, Advanced Wilderness First Aid, etc).  The course focuses on conducting rapid but thorough trauma assessments and providing optimal patient care in a team setting.  Students will alternate between lecture and hands on practice, learning and practicing patient assessment, airway management, hemmorhage control, spinal motion restriction, extremity trauma, and auto extrication.  To learn more about this exciting course click HERE.
  • ITLS Advanced Provider Course:  This 16 course provides all of the content described in the ITLS Basic course above, but also focuses on advanced airway management, the management of thoracic chest wounds, and fluid resuscitation.  To learn more about this exciting course click HERE.

Tactical Medical Care:

PEMT Inc has developed three different tactical medicine courses, derived from the Tactical Emergency Casualty Care guidelines.

These are a set of best practice recommendations for casualty management during civilian tactical and rescue operations. Based upon the principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), TECC accounts for the differences in the civilian environment, resources, patient population, and scope of practice from the military combat environment of TCCC.

These three programs are:

  • Self Care First Aid:  Self Care First Aid is a four hour course based on the Care Under Fire stage of TECC and TCCC. SCFA provides a set of immediate action drills for self and buddy aid situations. Designed for hunters, shooters, heavy equipment operators, and others who work with extreme forces and risk of catastrophic injury, SCFA covers control of massive hemorrhage with tourniquets and dressings on both yourself and others, and teaches a variety of methods to move a casualty over different types of terrain.

  • Law Enforcement Tactical Care:  This 4 hour course is targeted toward law enforcement personnel (i.e. Police, CBSA, COS, Corrections, DFO, Sheriffs, etc) who may have to treat themselves or their fellow officers in a hostile environment.  The course provides training in the context of the law enforcement environment.  To learn more about this course click HERE.
  • Tactical Emergency Casualty Care: This 16 hour course is targeted toward  professional responders.  It teaches the first two phases of the TCCC model:  Care Under Fire and Tactical Field Care.
  • The Tactical Emergency Casualty Care (TECC) guidelines are a set of best practice recommendations for casualty management during civilian tactical and rescue operations. Based upon the principles of Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC), TECC accounts for the differences in the civilian environment, resources, patient population, and scope of practice from the military combat environment of TCCC.
