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 and brought to your instructor course. The Instructor Essentials course takes between 2-4 hours to complete.
Part 2 will be held at the selected training site. Day two will cover information such as course organization, policies of both the AHA and Tri-State Training, card processing, administration of a course, advertising, equipment cleaning, changes in CPR and why they occur, skills testing, a written test and more.
Part 3 involves being monitored teaching a course. This can be done during one of Tri-States many courses or you can be evaluated at your own facility (depending on location.) This evaluation must be done within 30 days of part 2.
In addition to the steps above, all participants must possess a valid/current BLS for Healthcare Provider certification card. This must be an American Heart Association certification card. 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.
