AHLS Instructor Course
The AHLS Instructor* program is a six-hour, one-day course to prepare you to offer AHLS in your area. Often this course is offered following the two-day AHLS Provider Course.
After completing the course, participants will be able to:
Define and demonstrate AHLS principles and adult education theory
Properly conduct lectures to facilitate learning
AHLS Instructors can then offer any of the AHLS courses in their area with a team of instructors.*

* Please note: Medical personnel (excluding EMT-B, and Respiratory Therapists) may become AHLS instructors. However, AHLS requires a team of instructors including a board-certified toxicologist and a physician (if toxicologist is not a physician) who is a current AHLS instructor. An AHLS Instructor may be from any health profession including paramedic (EMT-P only), nurse, physician assistant, physician and pharmacist.
EMT-I classified paramedics interested in becoming instructors must apply and be approved by the AHLS Administrative Policy Committee before attending an AHLS Instructor course.
