Initially I enrolled this class as a volunteer to assist the instructor. After training with the participants and getting involved with the material, my instructor offered me a chance to be certified as a CPR/AED/First Aid Instructor. Basically my responsibilities are: exhibit the characteristics required of an American Red Cross representative and role model, and conduct courses in a manner that helps participants stay engaged in the learning process. Perform applicable first aid, CPR and AED skills at an appropriate skill level. Ensure participants' health and safety during training. Maintain complete and accurate records and reports. Plan, organize and conduct the First Aid, CPR and AED courses in accordance with the requirements of the specific class they will be teaching. Monitor participants' practice and provide corrective feedback and encouragement that is consistent with the skill chart. Recognize that the requirements in the skill assessment tool are criteria for ascertaining the proficiency of a participants' performance. Choose the appropriate course and materials to meet the specific training needs of participants or groups.
