BLS for Healthcare Providers Instructor-Led Training

Classroom Learning and 2015 update to Guidelines

The AHA’s new BLS Course has been updated to include science and education from the 2015 Guidelines Update for CPR and ECC. It teaches both single-rescuer and team basic life support skills for application in both prehospital and in-facility environments, with a focus on high-quality CPR and team dynamics.

In the Instructor-led course, students participate in simulated clinical scenarios and learning stations. Students work with an AHA BLS Instructor to complete BLS skills practice and skills testing. Students also complete a written exam.

Below are all the steps involved in becoming an American Heart Association BLS/CPR Instructor,  Please read this in its entirety.  Becoming a CPR Instructor is not meant to be a quick and easy process, there are several steps involved and all are set in place to gauge your commitment level and ability to follow instruction.  Teaching lifesaving skills to the public is a large responsibility that is taken very seriously by the American Heart Association, myself and my fellow Instructors.

Step One – Having a Current CPR Card

This information is for an American Heart Association Basic Life Support (CPR) Instructor Course, there is no affiliation with the American Red Cross, ASHI or ESCI.  You must have a current American Heart Association BLS Provider CPR card and a Heartsaver First Aid card before you register for this course. (I can assist you in getting these certifications).   I cannot accept cards from any other entity, sorry. 

Step Two – Registering for the Course

  • Send this application to kim@CPR4YourHeart.com so they may complete the TC Alignment section.  If you already have a TC that you want to affiliate with please have them sign this section. I must have an authorized signature in the TC Alignment section, I can't go any further with registration until this has been signed.  
  • Have your most recent Healthcare Provider CPR Instructor fill out the Instructor Potential section (this part can be done by me if your previous instructor is not available).
