Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) Training

All 2022 classes have been scheduled, ATSPA is not currently scheduling 2023 classes.


The Advanced Burn Life Support program is the American Burn Association’s premier educational resource for the emergency care of burn injured patients.

The Advanced Burn Life Support (ABLS) eight-hour class provides knowledge for immediate care of the burn patient up to the first 24-hours post injury. An ABLS class also provides emergency and mass casualty incident preparedness focusing on triage, burn survivability, prioritizing transport of patients and patient treatment.


The audience for the ABLS program is anyone who may come into early contact with a burn injury.  This includes fire fighters, EMTs, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, therapists, emergency physicians and nurses, pediatricians and pediatric nurses, first responders, military personnel and many others.


Through grant funding, the American Trauma Society, Pennsylvania Division can offer these courses at minimal cost for ATS member hospitals and EMS groups.
