Watch our Informational Webinar on How to Become an Instructor for First Response Training International!


We are so proud to be part of First Response Training International. A video-based eLearning platform teaching CPR, AED, and First Aid. All of our eLearning courses can be accessed on any device from anywhere in the world. Our instructors now have the advantage of focusing on practical skills in the classroom instead of lecturing content when teaching courses.

We are now enrolling for Instructor certifications with upgrade and crossover options from our SDI CPROX, CPR1st, and CPROXstAED courses now available. You can be one of the first instructors changing the CPR, AED and First Aid industry with our all-new video-based eLearning approach.

Are you an SDI CPROX, CPR1st and CPROX1stAED Instructor?

Scuba Diving International’s (SDI) CPR/first aid programs are being replaced by the First Response Training International suite of materials and certifications. Instructors currently teaching the CPROX courses can continue to do so until the rating is disabled. The date of CPROX’s deactivation will be communicated via members news and renewal notices. The new materials and certifications offer a totally fresh presentation and compliance for layperson rescue training. We are confident that the transition will not only bring CPROX instructors into international compliance but also be more competitive in the CPR and first aid marketplace. A specially designed upgrade path, known as the CPROX1st AED Gap program, was designed to help bridge the knowledge and practical component gap for CPROX1stAED instructors.
