The American Heart Association Basic Life Skills (AHA BLS) Instructor Essentials Course
provides the core and discipline-specific content necessary to teach AHA cardiopulmonary
resuscitation (CPR) and First Aid courses. The course is taught in a hybrid format:
instructor candidates will complete pre-course online study, followed by the hands-on
session conducted by training center faculty during the AHA Instructor course. This
course educates you in use of AHA Instructor teaching materials, how to ensure that
students meet learning objectives, student coaching skills, how to conduct an objective
skills performance evaluation and how to follow AHA Instructor course policies. Access
to a computer will be necessary to complete required online course work. Prerequisite
required at time of registration: Current AHA BLS Healthcare Provider CPR card and
alignment with an AHA Training Center. Registration four weeks prior to course start
date is required to ensure arrival of pre-course materials and completion of pre-course
preparation. An STLCC training center faculty member must monitor the instructor candidate’s
teaching and verify the performance of the candidate’s provider skills within six
months of the initial BLS Instructor Essentials Course per AHA requirements. Due to
the nature of this course, you must arrive on time. No admittance will be permitted
after the stated start time. No refund will be given for registrants arriving late.
