PCFD can provide the practical skills assessment for re-certifications for a $25.00 per student fee when hosted by PCFD, or for a $40.00 per student fee when hosted by the provider.

Heart Saver/BLS Instructor Courses

  • Cost $150.00 per person – Cost includes your CORE instructor manual

The Instructor Course is a 2-day program designed to prepare AHA instructors to disseminate the science, skills, and philosophy of resuscitation programs to participants enrolled in AHA courses.

AHA instructors are the best tool the AHA has to fulfill its mission- to reduce disability and death caused by heart disease and stroke.  The more skilled instructors the AHA ECC Programs have, the more participants will be trained in CPR and ECC.  By increasing the number of bystanders prepared and willing to activate the EMS system and provide CPR, early defibrillation, and advanced life support, the AHA will be able to significantly reduce disability and death from heart attacks, cardiac arrest, and stroke.
