American Heart Association CPR Instructor Course
The American Heart Association CPR Instructor Course will allow the participant to teach all American Heart Association BLS level certification classes.
The American Heart Association CPR Instructor Course is a three part course.
Part one, the AHA Instructor Essentials course is completed on-line at home or work. The course contains information on planning and preparation for courses, teaching courses, conducting written exams (if applicable), skills practice and skills testing and keeping your instructor status current. Upon successful completion a completion certificate is generated and should be printed out for your instructor record. The Instructor Essentials course takes between 3-6 hours to complete.
Part 2 two will be held at LifeSavers, Inc in Fairfield, NJ. Day two will cover information such as course organization, policies of both the AHA and LifeSavers, Inc, card processing, administration of a course, advertising, equipment cleaning, changes in CPR and why they occur, skills testing, a written test and more. This portion will take approximately 8 hours and breakfast and lunch will be provided.
Part 3 involves being monitored teaching your first class. This can be done during one of LifeSavers, Inc many courses or you can be evaluated at your own facility (depending on location.) This evaluation must be done within 6 months after completion of part 2.
In addition to the steps above, all participants must posses a valid BLS for Healthcare Provider certification card that was completed within the past 6 month through the LifeSavers, Inc training center. Once all steps are successfully completed, the participant will become an American Heart Association BLS CPR Instructor and able to conduct classes on their own.
