An online and in-person course focussed on the application of fundamentals, this is a pre-requisite for all Red Cross Instructor disciplines.
The Canadian Red Cross Fundamentals of Instruction course is the first course on the pathway to becoming an instructor in any of the Red Cross first aid disciplines: First Aid & CPR, Wilderness, or Professional Responder. This course focusses on the Red Cross program and the application of teaching fundamentals. This course consists of an online Fundamentals of Instruction module that can take approximately 8 hours to complete, and then a 2-day classroom component.
Prior to taking this course, instructor candidates need to have participant-level certification in the level they wish to teach (Standard First Aid is the most common), and a Skills Assessment done by a Teaching Experience Supervisor or Instructor Trainer for that level.
Once the Fundamentals of Instruction is complete, instructor candidates can go on to take the discipline-specific instructor course, and then complete a Teaching Experience with a Teaching Experience Supervisor or Instructor Trainer in that discipline.
