First Aid and CPR Instructor Training

For over 28 years EMS Safety has been providing OSHA-compliant emergency care training programs to workplace and community Instructors around the country.

Become a CPR Instructor

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 $375.00 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.

If you are a current CPR Instructor through another nationally-recognized organization, you qualify to Grandfather into EMS Safety. There is no need to attend the CPR, AED and First Aid Instructor course.

Grandfather Information

How much does it cost to grandfather (bridge, crossover) into EMS Safety?

A CORE (CPR/AED/First Aid) Instructor Kit is just $150. No hidden costs, no extra fees. We believe in being transparent, and earning your business based on exceptional quality training programs and Instructor support.

How long does it take to learn how to teach with EMS Safety’s training programs?

Our Instructors are busy people, so we make it easy to get started. Between a short series of videos, an Instructor Manual that guides you step-by-step, and a Success Team to answer your questions, you will be teaching your first EMS Safety course in no time.

When you are more familiar with the training materials, you can customize your courses to your teaching style and your students’ needs.

 How are EMS Safety emergency care training programs different from others?

EMS Safety and other national training organizations all follow ILCOR (International Liaison Committee on Resuscitation) guidelines for CPR and First Aid. We all teach the same information. We just package it differently.

EMS Safety views CPR and First Aid Instructors differently from other training organizations. We know you have choices. We are here to serve you, to help you become exceptional Instructors, and to eliminate unnecessary administrative requirements.

How much do your student workbooks and certification cards cost?

Our training materials are the best value in the industry. Even better, we base your cost on how much you spend with EMS Safety. The more you teach, the less it costs for Workbooks and Cards.

Do you require hands-on skill practice with your CPR and first aid courses?

Yes. If you are looking for a program that does not require hands-on skills, EMS Safety is not the program for you. Every EMS Safety CPR and first aid course must include hands-on skill practice.
