The process for becoming an instructor with the American Heart Association has 3 parts.
Part 1: Online Instruction. The AHA Instructor Essentials course is completed on-line at home or work.
Part 2: Hands-on Training. This one-day course will cover information such as course organization, policies of the AHA, and more.
Part 3: Instructor Monitoring. This involves being monitored when you teach your first class.
Upon completion of all 3 parts, you will be issued an American Heart Association Instructor Certification valid for 2-years.
