Becoming an American Safety & Health Institute instructor is a cost-effective option to other nationally recognized programs.

The Instructor Development Course (IDC) from the American Safety & Health Institute will allow you to teach ASHI courses. During this course you will learn new methods that involve, influence and facilitate adult learning while refining your teaching skills. The course covers a proven, standardized method of teaching topics like First aid, CPR and AED with high effectiveness. You will also be provided with the reasons and dynamics behind each topic or visual presentation.

There are two methods of becoming an ASHI Instructor.
  1. Non-Current Health & Safety Instructors:
    Instructor candidates are required to present a Student/Provider level card (of the program they wish to instruct, for example: CPR, First Aid, Bloodborne Pathogens) before admission to a 2 day IDC. Instructor Candidates must demonstrate a strong cognitive grasp of the subject material and be able to proficiently demonstrate all skills taught in the student level program.
  2. Current Health & Safety Instructors:
    If you are a current and valid instructor from another organization (AHA, ARC, and NSC) or equivalent, you can be “Grandfathered” into ASHI. Will need to provide copies of your current certifications and is suggested to attend a one-day “Grandfather” IDC course.

At the end of the IDC course, students who successfully complete the course will have their paperwork sent to ASHI Headquarters, who will send the Instructor Certification.
