Region 7 Conference: IN THE MIDST OF CHAOS

September 15, 2017 at the Tinley Park Convention Center



ECRN Classes for Region 7 Hospitals may be found at



Registrations can be completed on-line at, 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 very 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

Again make sure you view the System’s Lead Instructor policy on the LICENSURE page BEFORE signing up for a course to make sure you meet licensure requirements.
