Thank you for your interest in becoming an instructor. Love Health Service offers AHA BLS, ACLS, and PALS instructor classes on an as needed basis. Our business model is designed to support our own instructor needs, large organizations looking to develop their own internal instructor cohort, and individuals/orgnizations looking for a for-profit training partner.

While BLS instructors are encouraged to develop their own BLS Provider and/or Heartsaver CPR classes, ACLS and PALS instructor candidates generally teach at one of our existing satellite locations or at one of our training partner locations. To become an AHA Instructor, candidates must:

Love Health Service is a for-profit education and consulting company. Therefore there is a yearly admin fee charged and/or a requirment to teach a minimum number of classes to cover administrative support service costs. Sometimes this fee is paid by an employer but if not, the instructor will need to factor this fee into their decision to join Love Health Service. Love Health Service also charges a per card fee for each course completion card issued. Please contact Love Health Service for more information.
