CPR Instructor Planning

We warmly welcome instructors who will teach for their employers.

*Annual affiliation fee waived when the instructor teaches two, non-compensated CPR Training Company classes every year.

The CPR Training Company strives to keep our fees as low as possible while maximizing the benefits we offer our instructors. As you consider becoming an instructor, it is wise to factor in the following costs. 

  • Instructor Class Fees – Onetime fee, includes current instructor and provider manuals
  • Annual Affiliation Fee – Annual per discipline fee*
  • Equipment costs (manikins, etc.)
  • Card Fees - Vary by discipline and volume, cards are ordered at our online store and must be issued to each learner who passes your CPR class

*Annual affiliation fee waived when the instructor teaches two, non-compensated CPR Training Company classes every year. Fees are subject to change without notice.
