Aligned Instructor Recertification

** LifeSavers Training Center Aligned Instructors Only **

This section is for previously trained Instructors needing to be recertified)

Intended Audience:

Welcome to the LifeSavers Instructor Recertification Page.

I would like to take this opportunity to "Thank You" for your continued alignment with LifeSavers and your passion for teaching our community how to save lives.

Without you, there would be less lives saved!

Always remember....YOU make a difference in what you have chosen to do with your talents.

All Instructors that have joined LifeSavers Training Center will need to be realigned with LifeSavers due January of even years. What does this mean for you? You will need to do the following to stay current and continue to teach any and all American Heart Association Courses. If you do not complete any of the following, you will receive an email from LifeSavers informing you that you no longer are aligned with LifeSavers as your training center and you will not have access to any American Heart Association certification cards.

Recertification Guidelines:

  • Teach all current AHA guidelines, using all AHA materials, and issuing AHA certification cards.
  • No guessing – if a participant asks you any questions and you do not know the answer – it is your responsibility to find the answer and follow through in getting back to them. This is not only reflective on you, but LifeSavers training center and AHA. Please follow through.
  • Stay current as an AHA certified Instructor. It is your responsibility to keep your Instructor card current. There is NO grace period if you expire.
  • Stay current as an aligned Instructor with LifeSavers. All Instructors fee is due January of even years. Therefore, you will be billed every other year covering a 2 year period. The fee is $96. biannually for 2 yr alignment certification ($48. per year) This fee is for administrative support: postage, office materials and equipment, website maintenance, and office time and service. If payment is not received in full by the end of January, your alignment with LifeSavers will be terminated immediately. (This will be emailed to you before the end of the year.)
  • Use LifeSavers as a resource. AHA has all Instructors aligned with a training center for a support system and resource. Please email LifeSavers with any and all questions you may have. We pride ourselves in getting back to you as soon as possible. If I have not responded to your email within 48 hours, please call my cellular number 612.987.5374. Thank you, Sandy

Instructor Recertification Courses / Process :

Many of you have been inquiring about the AHA's new process of Instructor Recertification courses.

AHA now wants the Training Center (LifeSavers) to watch you teach a course in order to renew you every 2 years. So far, I have been requesting that you come and co-teach a course with me and it has been going great. As you can see by the attached form, I can also come to your site, as requested. If you have several Instructors that are aligned with Lifesavers, we are happy to come and watch several of you teach at your own training site. We also spend about 30 additional minutes together to review other pertinent information.

At this time, the fee for Instructor recertification continues to be $ 40.00.

Please be sure to contact me at least 2 months prior to your renewal date to assure scheduling and completion.

(REMINDER: It is your responsibility to keep track of your Instructor expiration date.)
