The ITLS Board of Directors has approved alternate pathways for achieving initial ITLS Provider certification or ITLS Provider recertification during the COVID-19 pandemic. The Patient Assessment Practical Exam will be conducted live via videoconference for all options.
ITLS is proud to announce the release of the 9th Edition ITLS Rapid Renewal Provider Update.
