- Jan 1, '09 by FriendlyGhostRNWell, as far as I've come across, hospitals and nursing schools require that CRP certification is done through the American Heart Association, and not the Red Cross. I honestly am not sure why... (I'm not wishing to become an instructor for CPR, however I hope I've helped some.. )
- Oct 18, '11 by JOELKelm406American heart Association does all the research and foot work that leads to the new science changes and protocols...Red cross follows and kinda rides with AHA's guidlines but offeres a small difference to they can be different. ARC does not allow their instructors to teach or set up classes on their own...as their own business like. They also do not pay their instuctors. I teach for AHA owning my own business as well as for the training center. I make 13.90 per hour teaching for the training center as well as up to 65.00 per hour for myself.
