First Aid and WHMIS Train-the-Trainer

Building internal capacity within an organization or community is one of the best ways to increase the cost-effectiveness of training while simplifying the logistical processes often involved in obtaining training from an outside provider. Arctic Response is pleased to offer Train-the-Trainer programs to develop instructors certified to deliver Standard First Aid, CPR, and WHMIS training. Effective instructors must be masters of their subject matter, have a deep understanding of learning and teaching styles, be confident leading class discussions and exercises, and be professional in all aspects of program planning, coordination, delivery, and reporting. Train-the-Trainer programs are based on developing and mastering the foundations, while supporting each candidate in finding their own unique instructional style and voice. Three different approaches exist for obtaining instructor status in First Aid and CPR, each designed for a different level of instructional and first aid experience.
