AHA BLS Instructor Course Online



ACLS EDU is proud to be a trusted player in the CPR Industry. We offer a multitude of CPR courses, including the entry-level AHA instructor course. BLS Instructor certification online is available nationwide; all you need is a stable Internet connection to join us. All you need are the downloadable American Heart Association materials, as well as the stipulated shippable rental equipment. ACLS EDU is one of the only training centers who conduct AHA core instructor courses online, such as the BLS Instructor course online.  The COVID-19 emergency has not slowed us down one bit. All our all online courses are posted on the AHA Instructor Network. This has brought the masses to us nationwide, allowing ACLS EDU to create numerous jobs nationwide. The core and BLS modules conducted in the BLS Instructor Training course are only a few hours’ long; this is because qualifying candidates have completed BLS Provider and BLS Instructor Essentials Course Online prior and are thus fairly familiar with the materials.  Once Instructor Candidates complete the BLS Instructor Essentials, a certificate of completion and continuing education units will be issued. Once all prerequisites are met by the candidates, CPR Suppliers faculty training sites allow candidates to assist real courses. This is the best way to deliver information about instructing AHA courses: by watching AHA Faculty Regionally do their thing live. CPR Suppliers, a regional training center, is going international soon. It accepts all AHA BLS Instructor Course Online graduates.


The AHA BLS Instructor Online Course is geared towards anyone passionate about CPR, as well as those looking for a career change. It is recommended that BLS Instructor candidates have a strong understanding of BLS Provider prior to attempting to join this course. The AHA BLS Online Instructor Course requires no formal medical background; individuals such as police officers, yoga instructors and even lifeguards can make a career out of it! AHA Instructor Candidates must have purchased the required materials such as the AHA BLS Instructor Manual, as well as completing the AHA Online BLS Instructor essentials. ACLS EDU conducts BLS Instructor Courses online via Zoom and the courses are also instructor-led. This makes it feel like you are in the classroom, with live feedback from your instructor for questions and correction. Rental equipment is available and Instructor candidates are encouraged to have their own equipment. The first portion of the BLS Instructor Online called "Didactic'' will have potential instructors use their instructor manuals quite a bit. Instructors candidates get to practice setting up the room, as well as choose the visual aids to use, such as videos or posters. The first portion also explains how to storyboard, interact with students, and use the Program Administration Manual. Potential instructors are also informed they must be monitored teaching a course in the future and upon so, the BLS Instructor Course completion card will be issued, which is valid for 2 years from the monitoring date. The second part of the course covers "Record Keeping and Compliance", which is also presented via Zoom. Instructor candidates must have computer and internet access for this section, as they may be required to confirm alignment status, purchasability of ecards, and more.

Additional Information

ACLS EDU started opening locations nationwide when the American Heart Association approved the new courses that are conducted entirely online, which is initially meant to be a temporary measure during the COVID-19 emergency. The ability to create AHA Instructors anywhere in the world means more bedrooms are being transformed into classrooms, which means our reach has never been greater. Online courses also mean that Part 1 and Part 2 of your instructor course do not need to take place at the same time. Part 2 covers how to retain provider class and instructor records, as well as proving the purchase of AHA CPR and ECC materials. ACLS EDU makes this easy, using three different websites that have been approved by the American Heart Association. Instructors who successfully complete their course through us and then aligned with CPR Suppliers. You can find everything easily from the convenience of your smartphone. Instructors also get the cheapest AHA eCard Prices from CPR Suppliers and attractive perks.
