Required Medical Staff Certifications
In order to work for Angel MedFlight, the medical air transport flight crew is required to have the following accreditations:
Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS)
This certification includes a set of clinical interventions for emergency treatment of cardiac arrest, stroke, or other life-threatening conditions. It requires not only knowledge of the interventions but the ability to use them.
Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS)
When an infant or child is suffering from a critical illness, the PALS certification helps medical staff develop the skills and knowledge needed to stabilize the patient. Whether they are suffering from issues with blood flow, breathing, heart, or other ailments, PALS is designed to teach medical staff the best way to care for patients in the transportation process.
Certified Flight Registered Nurse (CFRN®)
A registered nurse who is certified for in-flight care has a special exam they must take that focuses on medical information as it pertains to air ambulance transportation. It helps nurses laser-focus on in-flight care and the unique needs of patients who are being transported.

Basic Life Support (BLS)
More than just learning how to perform CPR on infants, children, and adults, the Basic Life Support certification goes even further. As part of the certification, medical staff stay up to date in the use of debrillators, as well as preventative techniques to avoid the spread of pathogens, virus, or bacteria.
Cardiopulmonary Resuscitation (CPR)
Every member of our flight crew, whether medical staff or transport staff, are required to hold and renew this certification throughout their employment.
Flight Paramedic – Certified (FP-C)
Considered the highest level of academic achievement that a paramedic can receive, the FP-C requires paramedics have master-level capabilities within critical care medicine. This is the most difficult certification to achieve, and there are only a few thousand paramedics who hold it. All of Angel MedFlights paramedics have this certification.
