LIFE FORCE will be hosting the International Board of Specialty Certification on April 21, 2017. They will be providing Beta testing for the Certified Tactical Paramedic (TP-C), Certified Tactical Responder (TR-C) as well as the Certified Critical Care Paramedic (CCP-C). Certified Flight Paramedic (FP-C) and Certified Community Paramedic exams will also be available but will not be offered as a beta test. Those exams would require testing fees and registration through the IBSC website. The beta testing follows a slightly different registration process than our other exams. It is outlined below what each individual would need to be considered for the examination. The IBSC has been fortunate to have received an educational grant from the Tim Hynes Foundation to provide this examination free of charge. This is why it is essential we identify qualified individuals, those who are serious about obtaining and maintaining their tactical credentials. Testing Location: LIFE FORCE Air Medical, 975 E. 3rd Street, Chattanooga, TN 37403 Review the Detailed Content Outline or Exam Blueprint Complete the Beta Testing Registration From Return the form to before April 10th, 2017 TP-C Candidates – please send a copy of your current paramedic certification TR-C candidates – please send copy of your EMT or LEO credentials For questions or more information about the exams, please contact David O.
