How much does it cost to become a CPR and First Aid Instructor?

Attend the CPR, AED and First Aid Instructor Development Course for as little as $550.00 that includes 1 Emergency Care program. You can add on the AVERT program or additional Emergency Care programs for an additional fee. Emergency Care Program Packages include titles from HSI’s family of Emergency Care training programs which include EMS Safety Services, American Safety and Health Institute, and Medic First Aid. Options available include BLS, Childcare, workplace and more.


What do I need to know before I attend a CPR and First Aid Instructor course?

You need to be currently certified in CPR or First Aid.


Is the CPR Instructor course online or in person?

The CPR Instructor course is comprised of an online cognitive training segment followed by an 8-hour, in-person, Instructor-led course. There are courses around the country to choose from.


Is the Instructor course difficult to pass? I do not like public speaking.

The course covers a lot of information, but also gives you plenty of time to practice speaking in front of your small group. You will find that the time flies, and you will be astounded at the amount of information that is packed into the course.


The most important thing you can do to prepare for an Instructor course is to refresh your CPR skills.


Everyone is nervous initially. Instructors find that the more familiar they are with the course materials and content, the less nervous they are.


We provide LOTS of resources to help Instructors get comfortable teaching.


Is EMS Safety part of or approved by the American Heart Association?

No, the American Heart Association does not approve training programs.


EMS Safety and other national training organizations all follow ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) guidelines for CPR and First Aid. The CPR Instructor certification you receive after the course is through EMS Safety Services.


The American Heart Association and American Red Cross are training organizations, just like EMS Safety. We all teach the same information. We just package it differently.
