The American Heart Association mandates that your initial class must be monitored in-person within six months. To alleviate any stress associated with meeting this deadline, we've incorporated this requirement into the instructor class, ensuring it's fulfilled on the same day. After successfully completing the instructor class, your certification remains valid for two years, and you are free to begin teaching at your convenience.
You'll need to bring someone along to the instructor class who'll act as your student. During the afternoon session, you'll conduct a teaching segment, which will be considered your initial monitoring. This is a necessary step to fulfill the instructor qualification process. Please provide the participant's name and email address at least three days before the class. This individual must complete an online course before the class day. They should be present at the class by 3 pm on the day of the instructor class. As a benefit, they will receive a free BLS provider certification.
