Instructor Development Course

Instructor Development Course

Course overview

Whether you’re an entrepreneur looking to start your own emergency care training business or the newly designated training coordinator at your company or agency, the HSI Instructor Development Course (IDC) is an effective way to do both. Using a blended training approach, the IDC combines an initial online learning session to develop cognitive understanding, followed by a single-day, in-person classroom session for practicing instructional skills.

Intended Audience

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


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

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 submit an application for instructor authorization. Instructor candidates can also establish their own Training Center.
