CPR, BLS, ACLS and First Aid Skills Sessions at Florida Training Academy

Florida Training Academy / Acuity CPR provides American Heart Association (AHA) Skills Tests.

Taking an AHA Skills Test requires completion of the online AHA course (www.OnlineAHA.org). Courses not created by the AHA will not be accepted for Skills Tests. A Skills Test is not a teaching session. If you do elect to take a Skills Test and are not successful, no refunds will be issued, you will be required to participate in the full AHA course in which you are attempting to be certified, and you will be responsible for the additional payment associated with that course.

 

WHAT IS A SKILLS SESSION?

For those who seek  certification through the American Heart Association's CPR, BLS, ACLS and/or First Aid (online-based) course, the Skills Session is an opportunity to practice and test the necessary hands-on skills with one of our helpful instructors.  The blended course is a 3-part process to certification.

  • Part 1 - eLearning and simulation on any internet-connected computer
  • Part 2 - In-person skills practice
  • Part 3 - In-person skills testing

Prior to attending a Skills Session, the participant should have completed Part 1 of the the 3-part process.  Upon completion, the participant should print their Certificate of Completion and bring it with them to give their instructor.

WHEN YOU ARRIVE...

Upon arrival, you'll be greeted by one of our friendly AHA instructors.  You'll then be asked to present your Part 1 Certificate of Completion.  

We're focused on your understanding and success, so your instructor will ask if there was any aspect of the course for which you have questions.  Take this opportunity to address any topics that may not be clear.

SKILLS PRACTICE AND TESTING

You instructor will work with you to make sure you're comfortable performing the following skills (if applicable):

  • Chest compressions
  • Pocket-mask ventilations
  • Bag-mask ventilations
  • Use of the AED (defibrillator)

You'll then be given a scenario so you can practice these skills in sequence. Following this opportunity to practice, your instructor will then test your skills by asking you to perform the scenario without any assistance or intervention from the instructor.  

Once the adult check-off is complete, you'll then follow the same process for the infant skills and scenario (if applicable).

Upon successful completion of your Skills Session, you will have earned your 2-year American Heart Association certification.  At FTA, our hope is that this information aides you in preparing for a smooth and confident check-off experience!

Did you lose your BLS, CPR and/or First Aid card and need a replacement card?

If you took the CPR or BLS class with Florida Training Academy prior to March 2016, this may be the most convenient option for you.

As of March 2016, we no longer have access to the previous certification cards. American Heart updated its programs in 2015 and new cards were released in 2016.

Therefore, the fastest way for you to get a "replacement" card is to take this discounted CPR or BLS class.

 

If available, replacement cards can be ordered online at www.babcockhealth.com and will be mailed to you within 7-10 business days. If you do not have that much time, call our office at (904) 551-0918 so that we can verify your past attendance. Students who we can not find in our system will not be allowed this option.

No exceptions.

According to American Heart Association (AHA) protocols, replacement cards have to be requesting from our affiliated Training Center.

The cost of a replacement card is subject to change and costs are paid directly to BHES. Please visit www.BabcockHealth.com to request your replacement card. 

Card Replacement Instructions from Babcock Healthcare's website:

  • Allow 7- to 10 days to receive the replacement card
  • On Course Fees page choose General Fee
  • Scroll down to miscellaneous to pay Card Fee =$20.00 for each card
  • List your  Name
  • The instructor  Name
  • Name of card needed (ACLS, BLS HCP, Hsvr First aid etc.)
  • Class location
  • Date class taught
  • The card will be mailed when all of the above is completed.

 

** Florida Training Academy does not issue AHA replacement cards. **

Thank you for your interest in aligning with Florida Training Academy, an authorized American Heart Association training site. We look forward to mentoring you had helping you to grow as an instructor. Your annual instructor fees help to cover the associated administrative costs.

 

After completing the Heartsaver & BLS Instructor Course, you will not be able to purchase certification cards if you are not aligned with an AHA Training Center (TC) or AHA Training Site (TS).

                                                     

Instructor Candidate Prerequisites

Be identified as demonstrating instructor potential by showing:

  • A strong desire to teach
  • Excellent CPR Performance and Problem Solving Skills
  • Able to follow directions and follow through with tasks
  • Able to communicate effectively in front of a group
  • Current (unexpired) American Heart Association (AHA) Provider and Instructor Card for the discipline you wish to teach
  • Agree to teach a minimum of two courses per year
  • Provide a completed instructor candidate application (you may download one here) 

 

If you DO NOT already have a Training Center/Site, you may request affiliation with Florida Training Academy. At which point, Florida Training Academy will complete Sections Two and Three of the application. You will also need to pay the required Instrutor Fee of $125 before you are able to order cards from Florida Training Academy.

 

Monitoring and Mentoring

Each instructor candidate is required to be monitored teaching a course upon completion of the Instructor course. The monitoring process is usually facilitated by your Training Center (TC) or Florida Training Academy (FTA). The TC or FTA will not issue an Instructor card until a satisfactory monitoring has been done. A second and third monitoring may be required. This is not recommended as a punitive measure, but as part of our mentoring process to ensure all instructors are proficient and feel completely comfortable to teach ALL BLS courses offered by the AHA.
