For Instructors

 

 

 

Welcome to Heart Smart CPR!

Want to be an AHA instructor? Here is how…

  1. Register for an instructor course, there is very limited seating and we only offer this training a few times a year. register at www.heartsmartcpr.com/calendar Choose instructor course.
  2. Anyone wanting to be an instructor needs to have completed the BLS (provider level) CPR/AED class. Anyone can sign up and take a healthcare provider CPR course regardless of your medical background. You’ll be asked to present a copy of this certification during your instructor training.
  3. The next step is the AHA’s on-line Essentials course. You can do that at: worldpoint.com/aha-bls-instructor-essentials-online.html Cost is $30. Bring the completion certificate with you to your instructor class.
  4. Instructors will need to order the following and bring the book to class: www.worldpoint.com/en/Products/American-Heart-Association/BLS/AHA-BLS-Instructor-Manual-2015_-_15-1009/#.WQkOnhPyvIU
  5. Finally, we will meet with you for Instructor training. I will explain your role and responsibilities as an instructor, how we are going to assist you as your training site, how the AHA works and what your next steps are going to be. After the course you should be able to teach classes right away! That’s right, just one day!

If you do not have any of these items, you will not be able to complete training that day and will be forced to reschedule for a later class. Once payment is made for the course there are no refunds.

After training info:

Manikins, classroom videos, student manuals, certification cards and other teaching supplies are not included in the cost of Instructor affiliation and can be purchased after the instructor class.

These other items can be purchased from either: Channing Bete, Laerdal Medical Corp., or World Point ECC. I prefer Channing Bete because we have negotiated a discount with them. You can place your order at custsvcs@channing-bete.com. To get our discount please reference Customer Account #12430751 with Texas CPR Training. Our TC ID is TX20124 if needed. You can also call them at 800-477-4776.

Those items are:

  • student books for the classes you are planning on teaching
  • DVD for the classes you are teaching. Make sure and ask that the DVD you purchase is the one that you show to students in class. There is a picture and a link below.
From me you will need to buy cards, so let me know as soon as you want them so you have them when you need them.

You will also need some paperwork on a regular basis. These items can be found on your instructor google drive link that you received in training.

The Equipment you will need can be bought wherever you like as long as it is AHA compliant. If you have a question about this just email me a link and I will be able to tell you if it is or not. I have included some pictures just to help you see what to look for.
