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.
(Region-specific courses including First Aid at Work
Asia Pacific and First Aid at Work Great Britain require
additional training.) Through a multi-media approach
of independent study, classroom sessions and practical
teaching assignments, you learn to conduct Emergency
First Response courses.
The EFR 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 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 course duration is two
days or equivalent evenings. This is the minimum time that will allow you to avoided making common errors in teaching or marketing your EFR courses.
