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
