We are postponing all in-person courses until further notice due to COVID-19. We want to do our part to help slow the spread of this virus, and are unable to carry on in-person first aid or Foodsafe courses while maintaining social distancing. We are looking into alternative delivery methods, and will resume courses as soon as it is safe to do so.

With the healthcare workers putting their lives at risk and the shortage that is sure to come, our incoming masks will now be reserved for health organizations that need them. We are reaching out and working alongside them to ensure they have the protection they need. If this is you, you can see what we have available here – let us know how we can help.

Fundamentals of Instruction

The Instructor Development Program trains Instructors to apply an individualized approach focusing on injury prevention, learning styles and a variety of instructional techniques that consider the abilities, ages and needs of each participant. 

There are five steps



Step 1: Evaluate Skills and Check Prerequisites

Instructor candidates work with an Instructor Development Centre to confirm that they have met the program pre-requisites and possess a strong understanding of the typical first aid skills needed to be successful as an Instructor.

Step 2: Fundamentals of Instruction

  • Online approximately   8 hours (to be completed prior to the in-class portion)
  • Classroom                           14 hours 30 minutes

This consists of an online component, where candidates learn the fundamentals of instruction, and a classroom component, where they apply the fundamentals under the guidance of an Instructor Trainer.

Step 3: Discipline-Specific Classroom Component
