Welcome to the BREMSS Instructor Portal!

Attention Instuctors: The BREMSS AHA Training Center is on Facebook! Click below to request to join the group!

Announcements / Updates:


The AHA has issued new exams for the AHA ACLS Provider Course and AHA BLS Provider Course. These new exams must be used immediately. The new exams are labeled Exams C and D. Per AHA requirements, all ACLS and BLS version A and B exams should be destroyed or deleted.

Please remember all roster uploads are to include an upload of the student(s) exam materials for instructor led courses. Instructors administering the HeartCode skills assessment are to include a copy of the student(s) HeartCode certificate in place of the written exam answer sheet.

The new exams have been placed in the file vault of the BREMSS Instructor Portal. Please note that you do not have access to the exams through the AHA Atlas system. I have included a short tutorial for accessing the instructor file vault in the updated video below.

Please reach out to our staff should you have additional questions.

AHA Atlas Training & Education Platform Information

The American Heart Association will be transitioning the US-based AHA Training Network to a new Training and Education platform, Atlas, in June 2023.

The Atlas platform will replace the AHA Instructor Network and the My Courses/Find a Course tools to become the central location for your AHA Instructor, student, and Training Center management needs.

Beginning at 5:30 pm on May 31, 2023, the AHA eCard system will be down for maintenance. This outage is expected to last approximately 5 hours. During this time the system can not be accessed. This includes all training center activities such as card issuance, edits, and resends, as well as claiming of eCards by students. We are being told that once the outage is complete students will once again be able to claim and view their eCards.

Following the outage the AHA Instructor Network will be in “read-only” mode until the launch of ATLAS on June 5th.
