    ITLS Access gives EMS crews and first responders the training they need to reach, stabilize and extricate trapped patients. The updated course includes techniques for hybrid vehicles, trucks, buses and small aircraft in addition to its primary focus on traditional vehicles. The eight-hour course is built around the concept of using hand tools commonly carried on an ambulance or first responder unit.
