Each AHA Training Center (TC) has different policies on what they allow their instructors to do. We recommend you evaluate several different AHA TC’s to see what they offer and pick one that fits your specific needs as an instructor. There are alternative TC’s who offer cheaper Instructor classes, however, in the words of the famous Judge Marilyn Milan: The cheap comes out expensive! In other words, you get what you pay for and we frequently receive requests from instructors unhappy with their current TC who want to transfer out. To avoid this, you should contact several TC’s and make sure they can provide you with the resources you need to be successful as an instructor. You can search for TC’s in your area to see if they offer Instructor classes via the AHA Course Connector here.

If you have specific questions for us about the instructor class or how the teaching process works, feel free to drop us an email anytime at ADMIN@MIDFLCPR.COM. Here are just a few of the benefits of aligning under our TC:
