AHLS Provider Course
The Advanced Hazmat Life Support (AHLS) Provider program is a 16 hour, two-day course that teaches healthcare professionals to medically manage patients exposed to hazardous materials, including chemical, biological and radiological incidents. Participants learn to recognize the signs and symptoms of exposure in order to medically management of hazmat incidents. Healthcare professionals receive a four-year verification status upon successful completion of the course.
This course covers hazardous materials including pesticides, corrosives, irritant gases, asphyxiants, hydrocarbons and halogenated hydrocarbons and chemical, biological, radiological and nuclear agents. Specific antidotes and their indications, contraindications, dosing and route are also included.
