Fundamental Critical Care Support

Fundamental Critical Care Support (FCCS) is constructed to provide nonintensivists with the training to manage critically ill patients for the first 24 hours or until appropriate critical care consultation can be arranged. The course concentrates on adult critical care, but also includes separate sections on critical care pregnancy and pediatrics.
 
The FCCS course is offered in several flexible learning formats which allow institutions and individuals to select the right learning method. For institutions seeking to train healthcare providers, hosted course options are available which combine didactic lectures and in-person skill stations for a comprehensive learning experience in the form of licensed courses. For individuals searching to expand their critical care knowledge, an online self-directed option is offered or individuals may purchase the textbook or locate a course hosted by another institution near them.
