Course Info: Thank you for your interest in becoming an American Heart Association BLS Instructor. The American Heart Association CPR Instructor Course will allow the participant to teach all American Heart Association BLS level certification & Heartsaver CPR classes.

There are 4 steps to becoming an instructor:
Step 1: Attend the instructor screening course, the candidate will be tested on your CPR knowledge. You will be issued a version of the BLS Provider written test and you will demonstrate your skills in 1 and 2 rescuer adult, child and infant CPR, use of an AED and use of airway devices including a pocket mask and a bag valve mask. As an instructor candidate, you will need to pass the skills test unassisted and pass the written test with a minimum score of 92% or better. Once the testing process is completed, assuming you pass the testing, you will continue on with the Instructor Course. If you do not pass the screening or written exam with a 92% or better, the instructor course ends for you and you can reschedule to the next class. You are only allowed to move classes once.

Step 2: If you pass your screening exam we will spend the remaining time going over your roll as an instructor. This time will be spent reviewing all of the AHA materials, such as the instructor manual and course DVDs, reviewing course paperwork, setting up classrooms and learning how to properly test students. This portion will take approximately 3 hours.

Step 3: Take the BLS Instructor Essentials Online Course, this is an additional $35 dollars (paid by the student instructor, not included in the $375). This course can be taken at https://shopcpr.heart.org/bls-instructor-essentials-online The BLS Instructor Essentials Course is designed to prepare instructor candidates to teach AHA Instructor-led and blended learning courses.

Step 4: This is the final step in the process, and sometimes the most difficult. In order for the Training Center to issue your instructor card, each candidate needs to lead a BLS Provider Course and be successfully monitored by the Training Center Faculty (TCF). This is where the process varies between candidates. Some candidates have a teaching background and only need to learn the material. For the candidates who have teaching experience, the process may be completed in two class. Some candidates may have never presented in front of a group before and have to overcome the fear of being in the front of the room before they can start to teach the topics and this may take several classes to complete. This last step is completely up to each candidate's time frame and the Training Center is committed to helping you all the way through this process.

Prerequisite: All participants must posses a valid American Heart Association BLS Provider certification card.

Manuals: Instructors must purchase the BLS or Heartsaver Instructor Manual for the discipline they are teaching. BLS Instructor Manual $42.50 / Heartsaver Instructor Manual $59.50 These are additional costs to the instructor to properly teach the course.

Process Attention: To run CPR Classes on your own, you must purchase equipment (manikins, Adult/Child/Infant), BVMs, AED Trainers, videos from the AHA and other materials. Estimated beginning costs to start a CPR business, $1,000-2,000 depending on number of manikins and equipment purchased. ShowMeCPR does NOT sell equipment you will have to acquire, and prove purchases of equipment and be monitored. You must start Step 4 student teaching within 90 days of your instructor course and you must complete the entire process within 6 months of the start of your instructor class. If you do not complete the course or you lose interest within the allotted time, your instructorship will end and no refund is provided.
