IAP Entry Options

Flexibility for all instructor teaching & experience levels

New Instructors & Candidates


If you have considered becoming a Health & Safety Instructor but did not know where to start, we've got a solution for that. Credentialing entry provides all the necessary training and development to get candidates certified as an instructor, aligned with a center and activated as a new instructor. You do the work, we'll take care of the rest!

Pre-Certified Instructors


Are you currently certified as an AHA or HSI instructor but need a new home where you can develop, grow and flourish as the talented Health & Safety educator that you are? We also have a solution for that! Transfer entry provides certified instructors the resources to transfer alignment of your instructorship to our exclusive Instructor Affiliate Program. Terms & Conditions may apply!

Active & High Yield Instructors


This solution is particularly designed for those instructors who produce high level, high yield teaching activities and need additional support or just want a second option for distribution channels.  Choosing the IAP at Respond1st as a secondary alignment provides active instructors with additional resources and an expanded environment to continue their growth while being supported and backed by a dynamic, modernized training site. Terms and Conditions may apply!

Experienced Instructors


Want to be a part of an organization that actually invests in you? Want to take your instructional career to the next level and drive industry change across the region, state and nation? You've picked the right place! Respond1st LLC, at times, hires and retains highly experienced and qualified Instructors, Educators, and Course Directors for various roles within the company.  At this time, Respond1st LLC is not actively recruiting for any open positions.
