Become an ECSI Instructor

At ECSI, our mission is to make life-saving training affordable and accessible
to as wide a population as possible. That’s why we’re pleased to provide
multiple paths to instructorship. Whether you have years of emergency care
teaching experience or are brand new to training, we’re here to help.

There are two ways to become an ECSI Instructor.

Before you move on to complete the instructor application, you should know that you'll need to
associate yourself with one of our current Education Centers in order to complete the process. If
your training center or your employer is not already approved as an ECSI Education Center, you
or your employer will need to complete the Education Center application first.
