Become an NAEMT PHTLS Instructor

The first step in becoming a PHTLS Instructor, is to obtain a provider card. The requirements for the instructor class is that your provider card must me within 18 months of the instructor class. If your provider card is older than 18 months, you will have to take another PHTLS class to get an updated provider card. This is a requirement of NAEMT and they will not approve Instructor Candidate status if your card is older than 18 months.

NAEMT education programs are conducted through a network of approved EMS training centers. NAEMT works with reputable EMS training centers which possess appropriate training facilities and experienced EMS faculty, maintain affiliation with an emergency medical institution, have a qualified medical director to provide medical oversight and guidance, and are committed to developing and sustaining a quality EMS training program at their center.

All approved NAEMT training centers are required to use approved NAEMT instructors to conduct NAEMT courses. NAEMT has specific requirements to become an approved instructor, as outlined below. To obtain approval, all of these requirements must be met.

Hold a current license or certification as an EMT, Paramedic, MD, Nurse Practitioner, Physician's Assistant or Registered Nurse.
