CSEMS is proud to provide instructor courses of the highest quality. As an American Heart Association Training Center, our team of experienced instructors teaches the latest standards in providing life-saving training.

The American Heart Association's mission is to reduce disability and death from heart disease and stroke. Our Training Center faculty will teach new students how to instruct CPR classes for the healthcare provider, layperson and also how to teach CPR with first aid to the community. This course gives the experienced CPR provider the opportunity to learn how to teach and evaluate CPR skills. The course outlines what and how to teach; it is not designed to teach basic CPR skills. The prerequisites for this course include a current Heartsaver or Healthcare Provider CPR card and completion of the Core Instructor Course (this portion must be completed prior to attending the course).
