The Cardiac First Responder Instructor Training Course is conducted over two days. A pre requisite for entry onto a CFR-Instructor course is that an individual has certified at provider level within the last 12 months. The level of provider certification (Community or Advanced) will dictate the level at which they may apply for instructor training. You must next successfully complete a CFR instructor course and three monitoring sessions to become an Instructor. This qualification is certified by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC).

The minimum age to become a CFR Instructor is 18.
