AHLS & BHLS Target Audience
Medical professionals, including:
- Paramedics (EMT-P, EMT-I)
- Physician Assistants
- Respiratory Therapists
- Military Personnel
Course presentations are designed for EMS and other health professionals. Non-medical personnel are eligible to attend the Provider course. However, non-medical personnel and EMT-Basics will not be verified in the course, but will receive a certificate of completion and continuing education credits provided solely by AHLS.
EMT-Intermediate's and Respiratory Therapists can become verified Providers. They can also be considered to become instructors on a case-by-case basis. Approval to take the Instructor Course will be decided by the Administrative Policy Committee upon review of the candidate's credentials.
* Please note: Medical Personnel (excluding EMT-B and EMT-I's, and Respiratory Therapists) may become AHLS Instructors. However, AHLS requires a team of instructors for the Provider Course, including a board-certified toxicologist and a medical doctor (if toxicologist is not an MD) 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.
