Who can obtain continuing education credits (CEs, CEUs)?
All EMS professionals can obtain continuing education. Our organization is accredited by CAPCE, and some states accept this accreditation for nurses as well (please check with your state).

I want to become an American Heart Association (AHA) instructor, what do I need to do?
First, you need to have current copies of your AHA provider certifications in the disciplines you want to become an instructor in (i.e. if you want to become a BLS instructor you need to have your AHA BLS provider certification). If you have a BLS or CPR certification from another entity that is not AHA, it will not carry over. TIP: if you obtained your BLS certification online and there were no in-person skills sessions involved, then you did not obtain a legitimate certification. Make sure you go through an instructor or organization that is licensed/accredited to teach the course. Once you have obtained your AHA provider certification(s), please email them to Support@120Commpressions.com along with your full name, e-mail address, home address, and current profession.
