For instructor candidates who want to teach the core Red Cross First Aid & CPR Program and who have already taken Fundamentals of Instruction.
The Canadian Red Cross First Aid & CPR Instructor discipline-specific classroom component focuses on the specific skills of the core Red Cross First Aid Program, and instructor candidates will learn to teach Emergency First Aid, Standard First Aid, Marine Basic First Aid, Emergency Child Care First Aid, Standard Child Care First Aid and CPR courses.
Instructor candidates must be 18 years or older, have a valid Standard First Aid participant certificate, have successfully completed a First Aid & CPR Instructor skills evaluation with a Teaching Experience Supervisor or Instructor Trainer, and have completed the Fundamentals of Instruction course.
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.
