Becoming an Instructor is an easy 4 Step Process!

Step 1

Hold a current (non-expired) Basic Life Support Provider Card or attend one of our classes. 

Step 2

Simple Phone Interview

Give us a quick call at 402-431-2510 and speak with us regarding your interest in becoming an instructor.  During this call, we can learn more about your goals, discuss the instructor course, and ensure you completed your pre-requisites.

Step 3

Instructor Class

This one-day experience helps prepare you to succeed as an American Heart Association CPR instructor.  Breakfast, lunch, and snacks are provided. This intensive course familiarizes instructor candidates with:

  • AHA course organization
  • AHA and Training Center policies
  • Program Administration Manual (PAM)
  • Card processing
  • Course administration
  • Quality Assurance
  • Classroom Engagement
  • Advertising
  • Equipment cleaning
  • 2020 AHA CPR & ECC Science Updates
  • Skills testing
  • Written test
  • Teach back

Step 4

New Instructor Monitoring 

One of our Training Center Faculty (TCF) monitors the new instructor deliver their very first class.  This helps ensure the quality assurance initiatives of Premier Emergency Preparedness and the AHA while bolstering the confidence of our new instructors.  This can be done during one of Premier Emergency Preparedness's courses, or the new instructor can be monitored wherever their first class may be.  This instructor monitor must be done within 6 months after completion of Step 3. Some instructor classes may already have the new instructor monitoring scheduled into the course. 

Once all steps are successfully completed, the participant will become an American Heart Association BLS Instructor and able to conduct classes.

Please note, there are additional requirements to teach as a staff instructor (PRN) for Premier Emergency Preparedness, LLC and we will not hire every instructor candidate that goes through one of our instructor courses. However, you will still be able to teach courses under your own name with support from us!
