Become an AHLS Provider

Join the more than 17,600 paramedics, physicians, nurses, pharmacists, and other healthcare professionals from around the world. Become an AHLS Provider, ready to face the medical challenges of hazmat incidents, such as chemical spills and toxic terrorism.

Each AHLS Provider Course is taught by a board-certified toxicologist, physician, and other AHLS Instructors. These expert instructors train healthcare professionals to become AHLS Providers and care for victims of hazmat incidents and toxic terrorism.

Small-group, interactive, tabletop exercises are included in every one of the following AHLS Courses:
AHLS Provider
AHLS for Tox-Medics
AHLS for Toxic Terrorism
AHLS for Radiological Incidents & Terrorism
AHLS for Chemical Burns & Toxic Products of Combustion.

The AHLS Provider Course begins with a multiple choice pre-test to assess participants’ current knowledge and serves as a excellent study resource for the multiple choice post-test. Healthcare professionals who achieve at least 80% on their post-test are verified as AHLS Providers for four years.

The AHLS Instructor Course concludes with a multiple choice exam. Healthcare professionals who achieve at least 80% on this post-test become AHLS Instructors.
