Audits Process Updated

EMS audits randomly occur upon renewal of EMS certifications and licensures. Starting in April, IDHS is implementing a more automated system for better tracking and efficiency in processing the audits. This includes auto-generated emails that provide a link for individuals to use to submit required information for the audit. Learn more about the changes

Website Changes: Can't Find What You're Looking For?

EMS certifications and training information has been consolidated into fewer pages and reorganized into different sections as part of a larger effort to better organize the IDHS website and help users find information more easily. Here's what changed: ...

Some information has been reorganized into two kinds of sections:

  • Collapsible (drop-down) sections: Open and close when selected.
  • Tabbed sections: Allow you to select different tab headings to find different types of information.

For example, on the Individual Certifications page, application forms for different EMS positions are located in the Applications and Curriculum collapsible (drop-down) section. Once opened, you can choose which type of application form you want by selecting the different tabbed headings (EMR, EMT, etc.). The current selection is shown in white, while the other options are shown with blue headings.
