Red Cross First Aid. Prepare for Life™
The Canadian Red Cross First Aid Instructor Development Program trains and certifies Instructors to organize and deliver the First Aid & CPR courses.
The Instructor Development Program trains Instructors to apply an individualized approach to instructing, which focuses on injury prevention, learning styles and a variety of instructional techniques that consider the abilities, ages and needs of each candidate. Our First Aid & CPR Instructors are trained to encourage each participant's personal rate of achievement, recognizing this will vary from one person to the next.
