For instructor candidates who want to teach the Red Cross Wilderness Program and who have already taken Fundamentals of Instruction.
The Canadian Red Cross Wilderness & Remote First Aid Instructor discipline-specific classroom component focuses on the specific skills of the Red Cross Wilderness & Remote First Aid Program. Instructor certification corresponds to the courses the Instructor wishes to teach. Potential certifications include: Remote First Aid Instructor (RFAI) - certified to teach Remote First Aid, Wilderness First Aid Instructor (WFAI) - certified to teach Remote First Aid and Wilderness First Aid, and Wilderness First Responder Instructor (WFRI) - certified to teach Remote First Aid, Wilderness First Aid, Wilderness First Responder, Oxygen Therapy, Airway Management, Basic Life Support and First Responder.
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 (RFA, WFA or WFR), 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 Professional Responder 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.
