    Event description

    Elements of the BLS Instructor Essentials Course

    The BLS Instructor Essentials Course is taught via a blended-learning format.  To become an AHA BLS Instructor, candidates must complete the online portions, followed by the hands-on session, which is classroom-based.  Candidates may request to meet through a video call, so long as they have the required materials on hand. The online portion of the course contains both core content and discipline-specific modules to prepare the instructor candidates.  The hands-on session, or video-call session, includes instruction, practice, and monitoring, allowing instructor candidates to demonstrate effective use of their instructor materials and skills. As a BLS Instructor, candidates will also be able to teach the following courses:

    • Basic Life Support
    • Heartsaver CPR/AED
    • Heartsaver First-Aid
    • Heartsaver First-Aid & CPR/AED
    • Heartsaver Pediatric First-Aid & CPR/AED
