For instructor candidates who want to teach the Red Cross Professional Responder Program and who have already taken Fundamentals of Instruction.
The Canadian Red Cross Professional Responder Instructor discipline-specific classroom component focuses on the specific skills of the Red Cross Professional Responder Program. Instructor certification corresponds to the courses the Instructor wishes to teach. Potential certifications include: Basic Life Support Instructor (BLSI) - certified to teach Basic Life Support, Airway Management, and Oxygen Therapy, First Responder Instructor (FRI) - certified to teach Basic Life Support, Airway Management, Oxygen Therapy, Marine Advanced First Aid, and First Responder, and Emergency Medical Responder Instructor (EMRI) -certified to teach Basic Life Support, Airway Management, Oxygen Therapy, First Responder, Emergency Medical Responder, Advanced First Aid, and Marine Advanced First Aid.
Instructor candidates must be 18 years or older, have a valid Canadian Red Cross participant level certification in the highest level you wish to teach (BLS + AM + OT, FR, or EMR), have successfully completed a skills evaluation with a Teaching Experience Supervisor or Instructor Trainer for that same level of skills, and have completed the Fundamentals of Instruction course (or are a current Red Cross First Aid & CPR or Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instructor).
The last step in the certification process is to complete a Teaching Experience online module (30-45 min) and a classroom component with the support of a Teaching Experience Supervisor. Once certified as an instructor, you will need to work with a Red Cross Training Agency to process participant certifications.

It was a lot more fun & interactive than I assumed. It was a good weekend.
Thank you Jaimie. Your years of experience and your professionalism and character made this course an excellent starting point for the next stage of my life and career.
Best first aid course I've taken in 20 years - and I've taken about 7 or 8 of them!
This was easily the best first aid course that I have ever taken. The practical experience will certainly be easy to remember. Gary is a stellar instructor and has a true gift in teaching and dealing with people.
It is great to have an instructor who has actually worked with kids in a child care setting! Very knowledgeable and fun.
"Great supportive environment geared toward progressive learning with consistent constructive feedback. A great week and experience. Thank you!"
Very engaging first aid course, best I've had. Nathan is an excellent teacher and is very knowledgeable.
I have always done St. John Ambulance first aid training. This course was taught differently but was more effective due to more hands on training. I will definitely return to Alert First Aid for my re-certification. Thank you!!
"Totally enjoyed the recert course. I always come to Alert First-Aid despite living in Duncan. I'd love for more courses to be offered in the Cowichan Valley."
Loved how hands on the course was. Really helped learn the material. Extra tidbits for us health care workers was appreciated. Thanks Gary! Will come back to Alert First Aid!
