Why is ITLS mandating an Instructor Update online for the 7th edition?

  • Consistency:
    • Ensures that all ITLS instructors are updated to the same standards for the new book
  • Convenience:
    • Brief and accessible any time; no need to take off work time or travel to attend a course
    • Minimizes efforts Chapters have to take to update their instructors

The ITLS Board of Directors and Editorial Board have set a policy that all Chapters are required to use the Instructor Update Online plus any Chapter-specific teaching requirements as the criteria for instructor recertification eligibility. Chapters may not require any additional didactic requirements for 7e instructor updates.

The Instructor Update Online is comprehensive and authored by the ITLS Editorial Board to ensure all pertinent materials is covered. A 30-question quiz at the completion of the program ensures a minimum standard of learning has been met.
