View Course Description Course Description
The American Heart Association Instructor course is designed to prepare AHA instructors to disseminate the science, skills, and philosophy of resuscitation programs to participants enrolled in AHA courses. There is no question that instructors are the key element in the AHA training network. The practice of medicine is considered to be both an art and a science. In a similar vein, AHA training involves both “heart” and science. AHA instructors are the best tool the AHA has to fulfill its mission- to reduce disability and death caused by heart disease and stroke. The more skilled instructors the AHA ECC Programs have, the more participants will be trained in CPR and ECC. By increasing the number of bystanders prepared and willing to activate the EMS system and provide CPR, early defibrillation, and advanced life support, the AHA will be able to significantly reduce disability and death from heart attacks, cardiac arrest, and stroke.
Target Audience: This course is intended for individuals competent and comfortable with Advanced Cardiac Life Support skills. Instructor Candidates must hold current American Heart Association Advanced Cardiac Life Support certification and can teach ACLS curriculum upon completion of this program.
Certification Successful completion of this course and subsequent monitoring results in an American Heart Association ACLS Instructor certification which is valid for 2 years from the date of the course.
