How can I train to become an Instructor?
Here are the steps.
A. Complete an Instructor Candidate Application.
B. Have current AHA provider status in the discipline of the Instructor Course, and be proficient in all the skills of that discipline. Disciplines include ACLS, BLS, PALS, PEARS® and Heartsaver.
C. Successfully complete the discipline-specific Instructor Essentials online course, and print the course completion certificate.
D. Successfully complete the discipline-specific classroom Instructor Course; BLS CPR for HCP Instructor Course, Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid Instructor Course; or the combination Instructor Course.
E. Successfully be monitored teaching your first course within six months after completing the Instructor Course (We will coordinate this with you during the Instructor Training)
Once you become an Instructor, you will have access to the most current emergency cardiovascular care science, course updates, training resources and tools through the online AHA Instructor Network. In addition, you will have the freedom to provide AHA certification and non-certification (dependent on Instructor certification) classes in Texas and will also be able to post class dates and times to reach more students through our public website.
With our main training site in San Antonio, Texas; our BLS CPR/AED, Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid, and BLS & Heartsaver CPR/AED/First Aid Dual Instructor training dates are varied and usually flexible to accommodate small groups.
We also facilitate training throughout Texas on a regular basis with scheduled Instructor Training dates in Austin, Lubbock, Amarillo, Corpus Christi, Laredo, McAllen, Midland/Odessa, and San Angelo. Check out our training schedule for additional information as well as the American Heart Association class network.
The goal of our Instructor Training is to walk you through the steps and provide you with all the material and guidance needed to not only to become an instructor but give high quality instructions to save a life!
