About the PALS Instructor Course

The AHA ACLS Instructor Course is provided in a blended format. You will first complete online training focused on instructional knowledge, followed by a 7-hour in-person session (see date in red above) to practice your instructional skills. The goal of the instructor course is to help you develop a base-level understanding of AHA guidelines and to teach, evaluate, and certify individuals in PALS.

 

Once you have registered and paid the course fee, you will receive email instructions on how to access and complete the online portion of the PALS course (AHA PALS Instructor Essentials). Successful completion of the AHA PALS Instructor Essentials is required to attend the in-person session. The in-person session of the PALS Instructor Course will include the following: 

 

  • Organization of AHA training/Program Administrative Manual (PAM) overview

  • Training Center Policy and Procedures

  • AHA Instructor Network website: instructor resources and navigation

  • PALS Instructor Manual Overview

  • Performing a skill and teaching demonstration

What happens after the course?

All AHA instructors are required to be aligned with an authorized AHA Training Center. Our Training Center is Community Health Education Services (CHES). At the end of the course, you will complete an application to be aligned with CHES.


AHA Training Centers are responsible for managing and distributing course certification cards and course exams, ensure compliance with AHA guidelines and maintain records for all students, instructors and Training Sites.

NOTE: Becoming an instructor is the first step to starting your own CPR business. Once certified, you are responsible for buying your own equipment and AHA teaching materials.
