Prerequisites:
There are no courses to take prior to your ITLS course

Certification:
Although certification is provided, completion of the course does not license students to perform skills learned under certification. This is the responsibility of the students’ employer or professional licensing body.

Recertification:
Recertification is required every three years and is typically a one day course compared the two day format of a full course. You can not recertify if your certification is expired. If you were a basic provider you can not recertify at a higher level to gain that certification. You would need to take a new full course to gain the higher level certification.

Compare ITLS

ITLS is the smart choice for your trauma training because it’s:


  • Practical. ITLS trains you in a realistic, hands-on approach proven to work in the field—from scene to surgery.
  • Dynamic. ITLS content is current, relevant, and responsive to the latest thinking in trauma management.
  • Flexible. ITLS courses are taught through a strong network of chapters and training centres that customize content to reflect local needs and priorities.
  • Team centered. ITLS emphasizes a cohesive team approach that works in the real world and recognizes the importance of your role.
  • Grounded in emergency medicine. Practicing emergency physicians—medicine’s frontline responders—lead ITLS efforts to deliver stimulating content based on solid emergency medicine.
  • Challenging. ITLS course content raises the bar on performance in the field by integrating classroom knowledge with practical application of skills.

Frequently Asked Questions

Who can take courses?
ITLS offers two core programs: the Basic Course for first responders, and registered nurses and PCP. The Advanced Course is for PCP, ICP, ACP, Registered Nurses and physicians. Please note that some professional groups may only require a basic level provider because of scope of practice regulations within the profession.  By taking an Advanced Course, ITLS does not certify to practice those skills. Always contact your professional licensing body or regulator for specific requirements.

Advanced Provider Course

The ITLS Advanced Provider Course is for advanced level providers only. Lecture content is the same as the ITLS Basic. Information on advanced level patient care is required lecture material and will be included in the written exam.  The Advanced Airway and IV/Chest Decompression skills stations will be included in the type of course.  When deciding if you should take a basic course or advanced course ask yourself these questions:

  • Do I require an advanced course for licensure with my professional legislative body?
  • Do I have the ability to use some or all of the skills in clinical practice without supervision?
  • This is not an ATLS course required by some physicians and does not qualify for reciprocity.

This course designed for allied health care professionals, focuses on the early recognition and treatment of critical trauma situations. It incorporates practical sessions in patient immobilization and transport, and then progresses to in-hospital care techniques including incubation, intraosseous insertions, and chest decompression. This course combines short lectures and practice sessions.

Instructors:
Instructors are health care practitioners in emergency or critical care medicine.

Prerequisites:
There are no courses to take prior to your ITLS course
