Welcome to IEMS! We are always happy to have you on our team.
To join IEMS, please follow these steps:
Once your account has been created, you can log in here.
Log into Compass, click on "Browse Course Catalog" in the bottom-left corner, and search "IEMS." Mousing over the Course ID will bring up a small arrow, which you can click on and then click "Enroll." All new members must review the content in the "Intro to IEMS" section; those joining as EMS Aides must also review the content in the "EMS Aides" section and take the quiz at the end. Once you have passed the quiz, fill out the following form: https://goo.gl/forms/TYGgpoAK0YxuPfrx1.
Visit our office in the Illini Union during office hours (9 AM - 6 PM on weekdays during the Fall & Spring semesters). New members must deposit $45 to cover your background check. You may request to have this deposit refunded after successfully completing two semesters meeting the minimum volunteer requirements (both operational and non-operational events). At this time, you can also obtain your ID badge and purchase the required uniform polo.
On your member profile, scroll to the bottom of the page to upload it.Â To complete this training first:
On your member profile, scroll to the bottom of the page to upload a picture of your CPR card. Please note- the profile will only accept one file per card, so photos/scans need to have both the front and back of your card consolidated into one document. Only American Heart Association BLS is accepted; if you need certification, sign up for a course on our website. To qualify for the discounted IEMS member rate, you must have completed steps 1-4 before the date of your CPR course.
Upload your EMT license and completion certificates for ICS 100 (https://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=IS-100.b) and 700 (https://training.fema.gov/is/courseoverview.aspx?code=IS-700.a).Â All EMTs must take Critical Skills annually (i.e. if you complete it in the Fall, you do not need to do it again the following Spring). Sign up on the Events page; if no dates are available, contact the Training Officer to learn if it will be possible to arrange for another session to be held before the start of next semester.
