Announcements

2015 Instructor Guideline updates are available on the AHA Instructor Network. These were due by February 15, 2016. You must complete the update for each discipline you are certified to teach. Email the certificates to ahatc@chattahoocheetech.edu. Any courses taught past 2/15/16 will need to be retaught if your updates were not completed before this date.

New BLS materials were released for purchase on February 16. Please order your instructor manual. If you use your own DVD, you will need to order that as well. The deadline to begin teaching with this new material is April 16. If you do not have the new updated materials, you must teach with the Interim Materials until April 16 or your materials arrive.

New 2015 ACLS materials are available for preorder now. They will begin shipping on 3/30/16. If you have not already done so, please order these and begin teaching with those as soon as possible. In the meantime, you must use the interim materials.

Card prices have changed. Please click the link below to see the new pricing information.

All exams are secured and therefore must be obtained from your Training Center Coordinator. I am sending the new exams as they are received. If you need any exams, please email us at ahatc@chattahoocheetech.edu.

Teaching Information

Please note that AHA materials must be used while teaching. This includes the videos and the books. AHA courses should only cover topics as provided in the teaching materials. Also, it is not acceptable to “teach to the test.” If you are teaching the course, students will pass the test & learn the material. Stick with the guidelines set forth by the American Heart Association in your courses! Also, if any student fails any portion of the course, remediation MUST be provided for them. An AHA course must include video, lecture & practice. It is the combination of these three things that provide an effective course for our students. Simply playing the video is not sufficient!

Forms

For questions concerning any of the forms below, please call or email Shelby Martin at 770-528-3538.
