The HSI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is an effective way to teach student instructor candidates how to conduct CPR/First Aid/AED HSI courses. Using a blended training approach, the IDC combines an initial online learning session (2-3 Hours) to develop cognitive understanding, followed by this single–day, in–person classroom training for practicing instructional skills.

8:00 AM - 5:00 PM
ehs/ Aramsco Learning Center (Tustin, CA)

Target Audience: Individuals without prior instructor training wishing to become an HSI authorized instructor.

Prerequisite: Individuals at least 17 years old who hold current provider certification and/or demonstrated competency in layperson adult, child, and infant CPR, AED, and first aid.

Successful completion of the IDC by itself does not authorize an instructor candidate to conduct HSI training courses and issue certification cards. Candidates who have successfully completed the IDC must affiliate with an approved Training Center which will apply for instructor authorization. Instructor candidates can also establish their own Training Center.
