Thank you for your interest in American Heart Association Heartsaver Instructor Renewal Training with CPR Seattle. To enroll in a class, or view our current schedule click here. The following information outlines instructor eligibility to enroll in a renewal course, required skill proficiencies, required course materials (which are not included in the cost of the class), and how to prepare. Please do not hesitate to contact us with any questions via phone (206-504-3280) or email (firstname.lastname@example.org).
Instructor must be aligned with CPR Seattle as their Training Center. Please visit our American Heart Association Training Center Information page for details on how to align with CPR Seattle.
Instructor must have taught four heartsaver classes (CPR, first aid, or skills checks) in the two years prior to their certification card expiration. These course records must be submitted to CPR Seattle before the instructor renewal course (instructors aligned with CPR Seattle do not need to submit course paperwork as we have access to those electronic records).
Instructor must have completed any AHA updates required within the previous two years. A completion certificate must be submitted to CPR Seattle before the instructor renewal course (if any updates were required over the previous two years).
Instructor must be able to demonstrate exemplary CPR and first aid skills (listed below), and pass the Heartsaver Student Exam.
Instructors who do not meet the renewal eligibility criteria listed above can attend the initial Heartsaver Instructor training course. CPR Seattle will need a copy of your AHA Core Instructor Course (in the event that the Core Course certificate cannot be produced the course must be repeated).
If you do not teach frequently you will need to practice your skills in order to pass the instructor renewal class. Please go through your Heartsaver course materials and course DVD for review.
CPR Seattle welcomes new instructors! Please visit our Training Center page and refer to "How to Align with CPR Seattle" for more information.
