BLS Instructor vs. HeartSaver Instructor
There are all kinds of medical certifications out there and understanding the differences between them all can be tricky. Usually, every certification has its own requirements, curriculum, and materials. The AHA offers two different CPR classes that target different professions or types of responders.
BLS stands for Basic Life Support which covers CPR/AED with advanced techniques for team rescuers.
AHA BLS is targeted towards licensed healthcare professionals and healthcare students who are required by their state licensing board or employer to have a CPR certification.
BLS Instructors are given the highest training of a CPR Instructor. As a BLS Instructor, an individual can teach all classes which include:
HeartSaver First Aid
HeartSaver Bloodborne Pathogens
What Is a BLS Instructor?
What Is a HeartSaver Instructor?
HeartSaver course and CPR guidelines are very similar to the AHA BLS course. However, the Heartsaver course does not cover the more advanced and team skill techniques that healthcare providers may use. To offer classes to these people, HeartSaver instructors need to complete a HeartSaver Instructor course.
The prerequisites to becoming an AHA Heartsaver instructor are:
Current American Heart Association AHA HeartSaver Adult, Child, Infant CPR, and First Aid certification card. (must include First Aid)
Completion of the online AHA HeartSaver Instructor Essentials course.
Attendance of a HeartSaver instructor course.
Be monitored teaching your first class.
In addition to these prerequisites, you’ll also need the following course materials to become an instructor:
HeartSaver First Aid CPR/AED Instructor Manual.
HeartSaver First Aid CPR/AED Course Video.
HeartSaver First Aid CPR/AED Student Manual.
Helping others make a difference in the lives of total strangers or close family members begins and ends with proper CPR training. Providing that training is a big responsibility but also a tremendous honor.
