Those who can, should teach.

Our train-the-trainer certification courses prepare instructor candidates to present information clearly, engage participants, and cultivate a learning environment that is comfortable and professional, yet fun. We help candidates learn to use American Red Cross and American Heart Association training materials in ways that support their teaching strengths and ensure the best possible course delivery.


$250 per person/8-hour course  (price includes online instructor registration fee)


Check our calendar for upcoming dates. If you have (3) or more employees we can schedule a training on-site. ​

HDL has been working with Specialized Health & Safety Management for a number of years. Susie trains our first responder team and ensures that I get notifications when it’s time for us to re-certify. This has been such a positive partnership for us! All of our training has been completed on sight, which is less of a disruption for our staff. I would recommend SHSM to any company looking for various health and safety training!
