♦ The cost of ACLS and PALS courses is $125.00 WITHOUT a textbook. If you wish to purchase a textbook that is an additional $50. If you would like to rent a textbook that is an additional $25 but the textbook must be returned at the end of class in order to receive certification. ♦
Lead Instructor Courses:
Registrations can be completed on-line at https://naemse.org/, National Association of EMS Educators
Each class has on-line assignments prior to the course, so please register early to not only secure a seat, but to get started with enough advance time to get acquainted with your assigned team and to begin the learning process.
Please note: Illinois has specific requirements for Lead Instructors with respect to time, experience, and a recommendation from an EMS System. Please make sure prospective registrants review the Lead Instructor policy before signing up for the class.
Illinois currently only has a licensure for Lead Instructor I not Lead Instructor II

A copy of the certificate they give you upon successful completion the last day of the course;

A list of all EMS (EMT, Paramedic, CPR, ACLS, PALS, etc) classes taught in the last 2 years; and
