The Emergency First Response Instructor Course provides people who are already qualified First Responders with the additional training necessary to teach the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children courses.
This course builds on the instructor candidates’ skills as primary and secondary care providers and focuses on developing their instructional abilities. Through independent study, classroom sessions and practice teaching assignments, instructor candidates learn to conduct the Emergency First Response programs.
To enroll in an Emergency First Response Instructor Course, you must:
Have completed a sanctioned course in adult and child/infant CPR within the past 24 months
Have completed a sanctioned course in basic first aid within the past 24 months
We do not include the price of materials in our Professional level courses as we find that sometimes candidates prefer to buy them in advance. If you would like to purchase your required materials from us, then please let us know in advance so that we can have them shipped with enough time.
