NAACS/IAMTCS Announcement-Statement


The National Association of Air-medical Communications Specialists was formed and incorporated in 1989. Since those early days nearly three decades ago, the organization has strived to meet the needs of the nation’s medical transport communicators through education, representation and advocacy. Our industry has grown dramatically from approximately 200 hundred aircraft nationally in the late 1980s to over 1000 available each day now for life-saving transports. Basic, Advanced, Critical Care and Specialty Ground units have multiplied exponentially during this same time. Recent FAA Advisory Circulars and regulations have focused attention to the higher standards of training for communications specialists. The majority of programs and fleets are now required to maintain “operational control” specialists as well.


Over the past several years, transport programs from around the world have sent communicators to be trained and certified by our organization. We are now receiving requests for classes to be taught in Japan, Canada and Australia, just to name a few. We are also in discussions with CAMTS to possibly become a charter member of the new CAMTS International Association.


To better reflect and enhance our position as the “Gold Standard” for Medical Transport Communications, the Board of Directors has taken the following steps:


Our new Mission Statement: Our mission is to provide professional development, education and advocacy in medical patient logistics for Operational Control, Air and Ground Communications Specialists.


Our new Vision Statement: Our vision is to be the premier solution in safety standards for Communications and Operational Control Centers through evolving education and enhancing professionalism within our community.


And finally: Effective September 27th, 2016, The National Association of Air-medical Communications Specialists will become the International Association of Medical Transport Communications Specialists (IAMTCS).


All classes, certifications, continuing education credits, sponsorship, CAMTS and AAMS affiliations will remain unchanged. The name change will be transferred into the existing by-laws of the NAACS Organization.


Thank you.
