Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Training

The American Trauma Society, PA Division (ATSPA) offered the highly acclaimed Advanced Burn Life Support NOW Course to our members starting in July 2023. This invaluable 5-hour online educational opportunity was met with enthusiasm, as 21 dedicated ATSPA members secured their ABLS NOW "seats."


This online course provides the “how-to” of emergency care for the burn patient through the first 24-hour critical time period. Each lecture concludes with study questions, to assist with assessment preparation. Testing consists of a written exam.
