Instructor training is generic. No matter what your specialty, I can train your group to plan, organize and teach everything from a short presentation to a long class. If you have a group of people interested in learning how to teach, or in improving their teaching skills, I will come to your facility and do an intensive course for them. I can also do a clinic on specific topics and skills, for experienced teachers. Send me an email , and we will discuss the possibilities.
I am the national program chairman for the Wilderness Emergency Care program that I developed for ASHI, and author of the textbooks. I am also a Master Instructor Trainer for their first responder, first aid and CPR courses as well as the wilderness courses (WFA, WFR, WEMT Upgrade). If you have a group of people interested in becoming instructors, I will travel to your facility and train them. We'll negotiate the cost based on the length of the course, number of students, and travel expenses.
Learning to teach is best done in a group, because we spend most of our time doing practice teaching exercises and evaluation. We learn from each other, and develop each person's individual style. In the process, we see what works (and why) and what can be improved, and bring out the underlying principles of successful teaching.
I have been training instructors and instructor trainers for over 20 years, and have published dozens of articles in national journals on how to teach. I have also developed many programs, including a national program in Wilderness Emergency Care for the American Safety & Health Institute, now part of the Health & Safety Institute (www.hsi.com), which publishes my textbook, Wilderness Emergency Care, and my Instructor Guide.
