Provider Recertification

ITLS Provider Recertification focuses on recertification of trauma assessment and management skills for the experienced provider who has already completed the Basic or Advanced Provider course.

Most ITLS Provider cards are issued for a 3-year certification period. To recertify, providers must successfully complete a 1-day Recertification course or the full 2-day Provider course. (Chapter and Training Centre requirements for these options may vary.)

Course Content

The 1-day Provider Recertification course covers the same skills stations and testing procedures as the 2-day Provider course.  Students are tested based on their skill level (Basic or Advanced) and will also take the ITLS Written Exam. An ITLS Advanced Provider or ITLS Basic Provider card will be issued upon successful completion of both the Written and Practical Exams.

Students are encouraged to review the ITLS Provider manual and study the Pre-Test in advance of the course to prepare for the Written Exam.
