How to become an Instructor

We are always looking for qualified instructors to grow this program. We currently try to run at least one instructor trainer course each year to certify new instructors. When these classes are set up, notices will be posted here, the council calendar and emails sent every unit. All new instructors will need to co-teach a minimum of 2 classes with an experienced instructor, before being allowed to teach on their own. If you are interested in being placed on a notification list for the next instructor trainer class please click here.

If you are already a certified instructor through a recognized agency (American Red Cross, American Heart, ASHI) and you would like to add ECSI please click here.

To maintain your instructor certification you will need to teach a minimum of 1 class every two years. This may be either for your unit, for your District, or for the Council.
