The AHA Instructor Course has three components which each instructor candidate must complete prior to being able to teach a course. The first component is the Instructor Essentials Course required for all disciplines and is conducted online. The second component is your discipline specific course in BLS, ACLS, PALS, or PEERS conducted in a classroom setting. The third component is being monitored while teaching a course by a Training Center or Regional Faculty within 6 month of completing a course. This course covers the BLS discipline specific curriculum including CPR for adults, child, infants, choking, the use of an AED and first aid. The curriculum will cover AHA history, preparing for a course, teaching the course, testing, closure, Training Center specifics including rosters and e-card processing, and keeping current. The course is a mixture of lecture and candidate participation with role playing and candidate demonstrating both skill and cognitive knowledge proficiency.
