Mandatory ITLS Ohio Instructor Update

International Trauma Life Support released the 7th edition of the ITLS provider manual in October 2011. All instructors are required to complete the 7th Edition Instructor Update Online before they are allowed to teach from the 7th edition textbook. Additionally, per the ITLS Ohio Policies & Procedures Manual all instructors must complete the instructor update by November 1st in order to remain a certified instructor. This is a mandatory instructor update to remain a certified instructor.

To register for the update please visit A $25 registration fee is required. This online course is administered through the International office, not the Ohio chapter office.

The Instructor Update Online is comprehensive and authored by the ITLS Editorial Board to ensure all pertinent material is covered. A 30-question quiz at the completion of the program ensures a minimum standard of learning has been met. Instructors who complete the update will receive 1 hour of CECBEMS credit.

Instructors will not receive their new instructor card immediately upon completion of the course. The ITLS Ohio chapter will receive monthly from ITLS a list of instructors that have successfully completed the update. The Ohio chapter will then process the students and a card/certificate will be generated and sent to the instructor assuming all other requirements are met per the ITLS Ohio P&P.

Notice to newly certified instructors: Providers that recently became certified as instructors within the last year are also required to complete the online update to the 7th edition material through ITLS.
