- Current BLS Certification
- BLS Instructor Course completion
- BLS Course Co-Facilitation and Monitoring with an experienced BLS Instructor (arranged by you and an experienced BLS Instructor)
After successful BLS co-facilitation and monitoring, an instructor fee of $75 will be required by the Heart and Stroke Foundation to receive BLS Instructor Certification credentials.
The BLS Instructor Course is delivered in partnership with the Heart and Stroke Foundation of Canada. The following prerequisites are required:
- Basic Life Support Course completion within 12 months (optional BLS included)
- HSF Core Instructor Training (online)
- Acute, emergency and/or critical care hospital or pre-hospital practice for at least 6 months
The Heart and Stroke Foundation is in the process of updating their instructor materials We are unsure of the cost or timing for these being released, but you should expect to invest in these materials once they are available.
Due to the delay we ask that you purchase the BLS Instructor Manual eBook (Product Code : 20-3103) from the AHA.
