Instructor Material Requirements: AHA Course Materials
All AHA instructors are required to use the current instructor manuals, provider manuals, workbooks and videos for each discipline taught.
Instructors aligned with EMSTAR Training Center are required to keep copies of all course rosters and evaluations for their records.
It is the preference of EMSTAR Training Center that course rosters are typed. If you are not able to type course rosters, please include an additional typed list of names. The course roster must be filled out completely and be legible. Incomplete or unreadable rosters will be returned to the course instructor and course cards will not be issued until the roster is complete.
The completion card fee must accompany the completed course roster along with an “Instructor Evaluation Form” completed by each student. If this is not done cards will not be issued. Submissions are mailed to EMSTAR Training Center, 1058 West Church Street, Elmira, NY 14905. Rosters are to be submitted within two weeks of course completion. Course cards will be processed within 14 days.
