What happens after I become an instructor
- You can apply to work as an instructor with Safety Training Seminars in the SF Bay Area. Taking the BLS Instructor Course with Safety Training Seminars does not guarantee employment.
- You can transfer your alignment to another Training Center of your choosing and the new Training Center can process your cards (not us). The American Heart Association can help you with this process and can be reached at 800-242-8721.
