Course Objectives:

The goal of this training is to provide the skills necessary to enable an individual to respond immediately to natural or human-caused disaster, to know what to do to lessen the negative impact caused by such crisis, and arrange for additional resources as necessary to resolve the stress/trauma accompanying the crisis.

This course covers the fundamentals of on-site field trauma response from the perspective of both emergency responders and mental health professionals. Participants learn the fundamentals of traumatology, including the basics of thanatology, victimology, traumatic stress, stress research, crisis intervention, Psychological First-Aid, Pros and Cons of CISD/M, sociology of disasters and our NEW Educate, Assess & Refer Early Intervention Model (E.A.R. Model).

This program is part of the COMMUNITY & WORKPLACE TRAUMATOLOGIST & the CLINICAL TRAUMATOLOGIST Certificates of Completion. A blend of face-to-face or on-line courses is accepted.

Those who successfully complete the Early Intervention Field Trauma training curriculum are entitled to use the TITC-EIFT designation (which stands for Traumatology Institute Training Curriculum, Early Intervention Field Traumatologist).

Who would Benefit from Participation?

First responders (e.g., fire/rescue, emergency medical services, law enforcement) as well as mental health and health care professionals will benefit from Field Trauma training. This is an entry-level program and no pre-requisites are required to receive the Field Trauma designation other than successful course completion.

How the Course Works

We recommend that the courses in each curriculum series be taken sequentially in numbered order. All the assignments and learning in EIFT Certificate rely on an integration of materials from all previous EIFT courses.

This process of study provides a chance to weave knowledge into a cohesive system for appropriate post-trauma intervention.

All of the courses offer opportunities for learning through online exercises, assignments and unit quizzes but many are simply for your learning only and are not submitted for grading. Assignments from the final Supervision course in the EIFT series will be reviewed and considered on a pass/fail basis only by Traumatology Institute staff. These submissions, along with the successful completion of core curriculum, will satisfy the requirements of the program.

Each course requires the successful completion of a Final Quiz. Your grade must be higher than 80% to pass these quizzes. When all of the courses are completed a Certificate of Completion in your selected stream will be made available on the E-learning site. You will be able to print your own Certificate of Completion from any computer linked to a printer.

Our certification is provided through Traumatology Institute but you can also apply for additional international certification through the American Academy of Experts in Traumatic Stress (AAETS) and Green Cross Academy of Traumatology in the U.S. They both acknowledge our training and provide advanced certification.
