Emergency First Response (EFR) Instructor course --

Instructor Course

Emergency First Response Instructor course | You can get CPR, AED and first aid training in your neighborhood from Emergency First Response. Our training approach to training builds your confidence to provide care when there is a medical emergency - and confidence is everything when a true emergency is at hand. We do this by teaching CPR and first aid skills in a non-stressful learning environment and providing more hands-on skill practice time. General academic information is covered using our independent study materials. This allows the instructor to focus class time on skill development rather than lecture. More practice time means better skill retention, which gives you the confidence to respond in the event of a medical emergency.During the Emergency First Response Instructor course, you will build on your skill as an Emergency Responder and focus on developing your instructional abilities to teach these skills to others. The Instructor course provides you with the additional training necessary to teach the Emergency First Response Primary Care (CPR), Secondary Care (First Aid) and Care for Children courses. Through a multi-media approach of independent study, classroom sessions and practical teaching assignments, you learn to conduct Emergency First Response courses.

The instructor course covers specific goals and performance requirements for the Primary Care, Secondary Care and Care for Children courses, along with instruction on how to structure learning, the requirements of performance-based training, and your role as the instructor in the learning environment. You also learn how to motivate EFR students, evaluate student knowledge, present course content effectively, become proficient in developing students' hands-on skills practice sessions, and are taught how to present an effective scenario-based learning experience.


The Emergency First Response program also provides for optional (yet recommended) Automated External Defibrillator (AED) and Emergency Oxygen sections.

Emergency First Response (EFR) Instructor course | After the recent hurricanes in the Americas and in the wake of the tsunami in Asia, emergency preparedness is gnawing at the edge of our collective consciousness; it reinforces the need for all of us to be prepared to be self-sufficient in a time of crisis -- especially in the magnitude of disasters like the world has seen in the past year. We also face the omnipresent threat of terrorist attacks; each of us may be called upon to help a fellow traveler, possibly in the mist of our daily commute to work or while shopping at our local market. Now is the time to take stock of your personal situation. Are you prepared? | Preparedness goes far beyond having a flashlight, water and a battery-powered radio. Having training in CPR and first aid is critical, as you are likely to be the emergency responder for your family or in your workplace or neighborhood when Emergency Medical Services are delayed or unavailable.

Prerequisite: To enter the Emergency First Response Instructor course, you must be 18 years old and have completed adult CPR and first aid training in the past 24 months or a be a practicing medical professional such as a physician, Emergency Medical Technician, Paramedic or Registered Nurse. Child and infant CPR will be covered during the course.

Candidates must complete the 3 knowledge reviews in the Primary and Secondary Care Instructor Guide appendix and the on knowledge reviews in the Care for Children Instructor Guide appendix prior to class.
