The Instructor Essentials Course is taught in a blended-learning format. To become an AHA Instructor, candidates must complete the online portion, followed by the hands-on session, which is classroom based. The online portion of the course contains both core content and discipline-specific modules to prepare the instructor candidates for the hands-on session. In the classroom, faculty will continue preparing instructor candidates to become AHA Instructors by focusing on in-depth material about the disciplines that candidates will be teaching. The hands-on session includes instruction, practice, and an exam, allowing instructor candidates to successfully use their instructor materials and skills.

The following components are required for a candidate to complete their instructor certification:

  • Module 1: AHA PALS Instructor Essentials self-directed, online session located on AHA eLearning (Assigned by BREMSS TC)
  • Module 2: PALS Instructor Essentials Lecture Session 
  • Module 3: PALS Instructor Essentials Psychomotor Session
  • Module 4: Candidate monitoring (must be with approved BREMSS AHA Training Center Faculty)
