Become an American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) Instructor

Save Time and Money by Training the Trainer: Make Yourself Invaluable to Your Employer!

Arc Educates offers a three-day course for those individuals who are interested in becoming a certified American Safety and Health Institute (ASHI) Instructor. After taking this course, you will be certified to teach CPR and AED for adults, children and infants, First Aid with Universal Precaution and HIV/AIDS and Bloodborne Pathogens.

What should you expect?

Following the guidance of the ASHI Instructor Development Course, this training is divided into three (3) instructor led sessions of four (4) hours each with four (4) hours of self-study (i.e. preparation for the written test).


Participants should already possess a current, valid student-level certification within the training area that the candidates wish to teach.


  • Instructor: Foundation and Concepts of Teaching Skills; Roles and Responsibilities of an Instructor; Legal Issues and Ethics; Learning Environment and Learning; Styles/Domain of Learning; Presentation Skills and Facilitation Techniques
  • ASHI Specific Content: ASHI Training Center, ASHI Programs Standards and Objectives; ASHI Materials and Equipment; ASHI Website

To finalize the instructor process, you will need to take the following steps:

1. Submit a Training Center Application form (no cost).

2. Buy at least one Instructor Package (includes DVD, PowerPoint presentation, instructor manual) for the trainings that you will be teaching. If you decide to teach more than CPR, you don’t need to purchase all of the courses at the same time. You have approximately two years to do so:

  • CPR + AED: $115
  • First AID: $115
  • Bloodborne Pathogens: $95

3. You will also need a mannequin and an AED trainer machine + CPR marks – You can buy them from ASHI or any other appropriate supplier.

4. It is recommended that you purchase Professional Liability Insurance as well. The ASHI Website has a link where you may peruse various liability insurance plans. However, it is not mandatory for you to make an insurance purchase through this website. As always, check with your employer to verify that they already carry this type of insurance and/or other suitable insurance options.

5. We encourage you to contact ASHI and confer directly with them about what exactly entails becoming an ASHI Instructor.
