American Heart Association Basic Life Support Instructor Course is intended for all individuals whose primary focus is education and training of healthcare providers and the general public in proper cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques.

Registration Details

Registration is closed.

There are two levels:

  • BLS Instructor - for those who will be teaching Healthcare Providers such as medics, physicians, nurses, EMT's, etc.
  • Heartsaver Instructors - for those who will be teaching general public such as child care providers, construction workers, etc.

The BLS Instructor course can stand alone or include the Heartsaver Instructor credentials. If you will be teaching Healthcare providers as well as the first aid course and/or CPR to the general public you must have all of the instructor manuals and materials.

If you are only going to teach Heartsaver classes then you only need to purchase those materials.

American Heart Association Basic Life Support Instructor Course is intended for all individuals whose primary focus is education and training of healthcare providers and the general public in proper cardiopulmonary resuscitation techniques. The American Heart Association states, "An AHA Instructor Course teaches the methods needed to effectively instruct others in resuscitation courses. The AHA requires that Instructors be at least 16 years of age for Heartsaver Instructor and BLS Instructor courses". Skills taught include BLS Provider technique and methodology, effective modes of instruction for specific courses, documentation compliance with AHA guidelines and much more.

Pre-Course Requirements:

  • Please print the BLS Instructor Candidate Workbook and bring to class along with your instructor manual.

  • Current CPR Certification:

A current American Heart Association card is required in the discipline you wish to teach (BLS for Healthcare Provider, or Heartsaver CPR/AED). You will need to demonstrate your CPR skills and knowledge during the course.

  • Complete the American Heart Association Instructor Online Course and submit copy of certificate upon completion.  You will need to purchase this when you register for this class and it will be sent to you prior to class.

Completion Requirements:
The student instructor is required to teach 2 classes within 90 days of taking the BLS Instructor Course. The teaching must be completed with Billings Clinic Training Center Faculty. After you demonstrate these teaching abilities and competencies, you will be issued an instructor card.

Please arrive 5 minutes before the class starts so that we can begin on time. If you arrive more than 10 minutes after the class begins, you will not be admitted to class. You will need to reschedule for another session at your own expense.

*The American Heart Association promotes knowledge and proficiency in BLS, ACLS and PALS and has developed instructional materials for this purpose. Use of these materials in an educational course does not represent course sponsorship by the American Heart Association and any fees charged for such a course do not represent income to the Association.
