AHLS instructors can then bring AHLS curriculum to their own area. If you are interested in holding an AHLS program in your area, please contact AHLS International Headquarters for more information.

The AHLS Provider course has received approval from the Office of Domestic Preparedness. ODP training funds can now be used to attend an AHLS Provider course. Check with your state Homeland Security Director for funding.
