First Aid, CPR, AED and O2 Instructor Course

When you first became an instructor, among the requirements you had to meet were current certification in first aid, CPR and O2 administration. And you had to renew those certifications every two years.

Now that you are an instructor, you should be able to teach these vital skills as well. Doing so is an excellent source of revenue, providing an above-average return on the time involved. It allows you to provide all the prerequisite training for Rescue Diver, Divemaster and Instructor. It also provides the opportunity to offer sanctioned first-aid and CPR training to non-diving businesses, organizations and individuals throughout your community.

Best of all, by choosing FRTI, you will be able to order materials and register students the same way you do for SDI, TDI, ERDI and PFI courses. ITI has used its considerable expertise in the field of diver training to create a suite of emergency response courses students tell us are better than anything else currently available.

FRTI courses meet or exceed all OSHA and ILCOR standards and are recognized by the United States Coast Guard.


This program is open to all instructors from ITI member agencies, including SDI, TDI, ERDI and PFI. Not already an ITI Instructor? This would be an excellent time to cross over. Doing so is not only surprisingly affordable, it can save you time and money and, most importantly, make teaching fun again. Learn more…

Time Frames

This program generally takes the better part of a day. If done in conjunction with an FRTI First Aid, CPR, AED and O2 provider-level program, it will take a single morning, afternoon or evening, plus some additional time before and after. Candidates must complete the associated eLearning before the start of class. With sufficient notice, we can generally conduct this program when and where it is most convenient.

Course Location

We usually teach this program at our offices in Gainesville, Florida. However, we can do it at any suitable location, such as your dive center. For locations more than 75 miles from Gainesville, Florida, there may be an additional charge for time and travel expenses.

Required Equipment

Unlike diving-related courses, you need no special equipment to take part in this program. Comfortable clothing, however, is a must. As part of this program, we will go over the most affordable ways to acquire the CPR manikins and other equipment you will need as an instructor. This can be a surprisingly modest investment.


Course fees are as follows:
  • Courses with two or more participants: $379/each
  • Courses with a single participant: $429/each
Among the best ways to offset the cost of training is to set up an FRTI First Aid, CPR, AED and O2 provider-level course for several of your own students or customers. We will not only teach the course but do your instructor-level training in conjunction with it. Depending on how many students you have, it may help offset some or all of your instructor course fees. Instructor fees include:
  • eLearning
  • Use of CPR manikins, AEDs and other training items
  • FRTI Instructor registration for Adult and Child Emergency Care and Oxygen Provider.
