Frequently Asked Questions
Do you plan to offer a traditional classroom style course?
My goal with FlightCrit is to delivery high quality education in a way that doesn't take you away from your other commitments like friends, family, or work. That being said, I'm also here to listen to what you need and want, and will tailor FlightCrit to ensure I'm meeting those needs. No other Training Group in the industry is more committed to taking care of you. If you have a large enough group, and would like to talk about scheduling an in-class refresher just send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll see what we can do.
What if I am unhappy with the course?
We would never want you to be unhappy! If you are unsatisfied with your purchase, contact us in the first 30 days and we will give you a full refund.
How long do I have access to the course?
How does lifetime access sound? After enrolling, you have unlimited access to this course for as long as you like - across any and all devices you own.
When does the course start and finish?
How does RIGHT NOW sound? The course is self-paced so start whenever you want and work on it for as long as you'd like. When you're ready to go through the material again (for credit) just send me an email at email@example.com and I'll reset your progress.
Can I get Continuing Education Credit for this course?
The short answer is it depends.
When you complete the course you'll received a certificate of completion with the number of hours completed which you can submit to your training officer for approval which can be applied to your State or National Registry renewal. Soon I hope to be able to issue CEU's myself, bypassing the need for you to submit to your T.O. for approval.
The same goes for your FP-C and CCP-C certification. Just submit your certificate of completion to the IBSC along with your renewal package.
NOTE! The EPICC Review Course has not yet been certified by the IBSC (formally BCCTPC) as an approved Review Course and thus can not yet be used to meet the "Approved Review Course" requirement for renewal of your FP-C or CCP-C exam. As soon as we received accreditation from the IBSC we'll let you know.
Can I use this course for continuing education hours to renew my FP-C or CCP-C certification?
Yes, you can use this course for a portion of the 100 hours of continuing education required for renewal. However, until we received approval from the IBSC, this course will not satisfy the "Approved Review Course" requirement, but we're working on it.
Will I be eligible to sit for the exam after taking this course?
While it's always possible the IBSC could change their policies, to the best of my knowledge you are not required to take a review course to be eligible to sit for the exam.
Will I be able to ask an instructor questions?
Yes! That is the primary benefit of this course over any other online Flight or Critical Care Paramedic Certification Review Course. Students will have numerous options for interacting with an instructor including in course threaded comments, direct email, live video chats via Facebook Live, 1-on-1 video calls using Skype or FaceTime, group webinars, and a Private Facebook Group dedicated exclusively for Academy students. And if you're really struggling, I'll even jump on a phone call with your if that's what it takes for you to be successful.
Does this course qualify as F5 continuing education?
F5 (VILT), or Virtual Instructor Lead Training, requires an instructor to be broadcasting LIVE, and for students to be sitting in front of a computer engaging with the instructor during schedule "classes." This is something I'm considering offering in the future, however it's not how I'm delivering the course right now. Each of our lessons are prerecorded so you can watch them whenever and wherever you'd like.
Do I need a text for this course? Will you be providing a text?
The short answer is no. Every idea and concept will be covered in the course material. That being said, remember this is a Review Course. Not a prep course. This course in meant to complement your own studies. Furthermore, it is expected that you have already taken the standard classes including the most recent update of ACLS, PALS, PHTLS, and NRP. We also recommend you take ABLS, AMLS, and STABLE before sitting for the exam.
If you're looking for recommendations for study texts, check out my resource page over at www.flightcrit.com/resources. This is where a constantly post new textbooks, and other resources that I feel will help you succeed.
I heard something about an Affiliate program. What's that?
An Affiliate program is a way for you to make money referring students to our course. When you send a student to FlightCrit Academy, you can earn a commission from the courses they enroll in. This is just our way of saying Thank You for helping us spread the word about FlightCrit and the Academy.
