    How to Make $15K or more, Part-Time, as a CPR, Safety Instructor

    in Business

    CPR, First Aid, and other Safety Trainers know there IS money to be made in this business, but HOW TO MAKE THIS MONEY was not taught in your certification course.


    I have been a CPR/Safety instructor since 1997, and an Instructor Trainer since 2001.  During this time I have trained many new instructors not only from many states across the USA, but two came from the Caribbean to learn as well.  Some of those I trained have even become my local competitors.


    Over the years, I get asked the same question during the new Instructor Training, HOW can I make money doing this?  After sharing some of these secrets and strategies over and over and over, I made two videos about 3 years ago that together, have had more than 3000 views.  I figured, a few people really wanted to know more, so I made an online course. It does not matter what certification Board you teach for (Red Cross, National Safety Council, American Heart, OSHA, etc), this course will help anyone who is new to this business, or, those of you who have full time activities (nurse, EMT, Care givers, etc) that do not allow you to devote the kind of time it takes to build a successful side income from this.


    In fact, over the years, I have had MANY trials, failures, hurdles and tears.  This course will help you avoid that pain.


    This show, is actually created from the uploaded audio of the promotional video I made for that online course.  You can watch that video here.  Whenever you are ready to take your CPR, First Aid, Safety Training to the next income level, It would be my privilege to serve you.
