Become a Training Site

American Heart Association Training Sites deliver lifesaving courses to thousands each year. This vast network of experienced instructors is a critical element in the dissemination of resuscitation science and skills to communities and healthcare providers across the country.

As an American Heart Association Training Center, Code One has the duty to align with Training Sites that share similar values in program quality and customer service. The Training Site Application is the first step in aligning your instructors with our Training Center.

What you’ll need to apply:

There are several items that you’ll need to have ready before starting the Training Site Application:

  • Business Information/Demographics – Basic information including your Training Site Name, legal structure, point of contact, billing and mailing addresses.
  • Instructor Number – This is found on your dashboard on the AHA Instructor Network.  Login at https://ahainstructornetwork.americanheart.org
  • Sales Tax Status – If your organization is exempt from sales tax, you will need to upload a PDF of your Sales Tax Certificate.  Code One adds sales tax on invoices in CT, MA, SC, and GA on all taxable items (certification cards, manikins, pocket masks, etc).
  • Certificate of Liability Insurance – All training sites are required to carry General Liability Insurance with coverage of at least $1M per occurrence and $2M aggregate.  Code One will need to be named as the certificate holder.  Your certificate will need to be in PDF format to be uploaded.
  • Inventory of Equipment – Inventory of all training equipment your training site has access to including manikins, AED trainers, course DVDs, student consumables (books, masks), and discipline specific equipment (i.e. BVM for BLS, airway manikin for ACLS, etc.).
  • Instructor Affiliation – A list of names, instructor IDs, and disciplines (HS, BLS, ACLS, and/or PALS) for each instructor affiliated with your Training Site.
  • Forecast, Values, Growth Plan – Code One only aligns with Training Sites that share the same values for quality programming and superior customer service.  We seek Training Sites that can demonstrate these values through established business plans, policies, procedures, and favorable growth forecasts.  Code One wants to help its Training Sites grow, meet customer needs, and exceed their expectations.  There are four questions you’ll need to briefly answer on the application:
    • If your Training Site is already operating, how many participants have you trained each quarter for the past year?  If your Training Site is new, how many participants do you expect to train in the next year?  What assumptions have you made to determine this number?
    • What is your target market?  Who are your primary and secondary customers?  What geographical area will you cover?
    • What policies and procedures do you have in place to assure quality of program delivery and to ensure a positive customer experience?
    • Briefly describe your plans to grow your Training Site.  How will you accomplish these plans?  Include any measurable goals your Training Site has established.
