What courses are available through CAMATA?
Currently the most popular course provided by CAMATA is the CAMATA Air Medical Training Program Level I. A one day Renewal program is available for those who completed the CAMATA Air Medical Training Program Level I over 5 years ago.
Another course which will be available effective the fall of 2021 is the CAMATA Air Medical Training Program for Pilots and Flight Coordinator. This program offers information to those involved in air medical transport, but are not the providers of patient care.
