 Student Teaching

BLS Class

After successful completion of the AHA BLS Instructor Course, BLS Instructor course participants will be required to design and conduct an AHA BLS class. Typically this class will occur at one of the CPR Training Company locations but BLS Instructor course participants can seek pre-approved for other locations. Regardless of location, the AHA BLS class must be pre-approved and sponsored by the CPR Training Company. During this initial class TC Faculty will monitor the student teacher and after successful evaluation, the student teacher will be provided with a course completion card and two year certification as an AHA BLS Instructor.

Course Fees

Our course fees include BLS Instructor Manual (mailed to address used during registration), instructor class materials, instructor certification cards (given after student teaching/monitoring), and TC Faculty monitoring (occurring a CPR Training Company location). Instructor candidate must separately purchase and complete (before this instructor course date) the online BLS Instructor Essentials class. ACCESS BLS INSTRUCTOR ESSENTIALS ONLINE CLASS.*
