BLS Instructor Course - Candidates

Information for those who recently completed their BLS Instructor Course. 

Thank you for attending the BLS Instructor Course with Safety Training Seminars. We are excited to help get you started in your path to teaching CPR. There are a few ways you can continue the course of teaching either with Safety Training Seminars or with another AHA Training Center.

Option One: Teach for Safety Training Seminars
You can continue your path to teaching by teaching for our Training Center. All our Instructors are Independent Contractors and teach on an as-need basis. We cannot guarantee our Instructors a set number of classes and our scheduling needs change month-to-month. Instructor will need to assist with two classes BLS, & Heartsaver CPR and First-aid (not paid).
After assisting with two classes, Instructor must be monitored teaching a BLS and Heartsaver course on their own (not paid). If approved, we can schedule classes for the Instructor. Instructor pay is $30/hour.

Option Two: Transfer to another Training Center

You can continue your path to teaching by teaching for another Training Center. Please have your new Training Center fill out and send the completed Transfer Form to us. Your records will be transferred within 30 days of the request to your new Training Center.

Option Three: Teach on your own as a Training Site
You can continue your path to teaching as your own business or with your employer as a Training Site. Instructor can teach their own classes at their site. Provider cards are purchased from the Training Center (STS). After you become an instructor, you cannot immediately start teaching courses on your own as a Training Site. We have a process which includes inspection of equipment, training, and your training site has to be large enough in order to become a Training Site. If you do not meet our requirements, we know of other options for you to become a Training Site.
