Why Become a Pet First Aid Instructor?

If a dog was hit by a car or a curious kitten began choking on a strand of string would you know what to do? Would you like to know what to do and be able to share that knowledge with others?

Knowing what to do in the minutes following a pet emergency could save a pet’s life and being that person who teaches pet life-saving information would be amazing.

People rarely think about pet emergencies but always want to be prepared. Knowing what to do not only reduces the stress for the pet, it can also help save on veterinary bills.

ProPetHero is proud to partner with Master Instructor Arden Moore, a national leader in pet health, safety and behavior to bring you our veterinarian-approved pet first aid & CPR instructor program.

About the Instructor Program

Through online video-based modules and live webinar hands-on demonstrations, instructors will learn the latest protocols in pet first aid as well as tips from leading veterinarians. The necessary skills and teaching techniques will be demonstrated so that as an instructor, you can train pet owners and pet care professionals in CPR, rescue breathing and to recognize conditions requiring pet first aid care.

The training takes place over two days. Upon completion, you will earn your instructor certificate and will be ready to teach in-person classes.

This instructor class is taught via video seminar, so no to need travel! You don’t have to book a hotel room or incur other travel-related expenses. And, yes, you can have your well-mannered dog or cat with you to practice on some of the skills we will be teaching you. You get to learn in the comfort of your home or office.

Our comprehensive, veterinarian-approved ProPetHero Pet First Aid & CPR instructor course will train you to teach others how to competently identify and evaluate the signs and symptoms a pet may experience during injury, illness or an emergency. You will learn the appropriate and most effective actions to share with your students on how to provide proper emergency medical care, prior to seeking veterinary treatment.

“One of the best ways to be your pet’s best health ally is to take a pet first aid class,” says Arden Moore. “ProPetHero and Pet I share the mutual goal of teaching practical skills to stabilize an injured or ill pet and safely transporting them to the nearest veterinary clinic. Getting the message out about how to take care of our pets in a medical emergency is of utmost importance to us.”

Cara Armour, program manager and blogger for ProPetHero, is also a certified pet first aid/CPR instructor. ProPetHero is part of ProTrainings, an international company that has trained more than 1,000,000 students in human first aid, CPR and other health and safety continuing education courses.

“Partnering with Arden Moore offers pet professionals, including pet sitters, dog walkers, groomers and boarding staff, the choice of how to learn pet first aid: online or in person,” says Armour. “Pets are beloved members of our families in America and knowing pet first aid and CPR should be a priority among pet professionals and caring pet parents. We at ProPetHero know that we can reach more people with this important message by joining forces with Arden Moore.”

      Hi Sonja,

      Great question, to keep costs low we did not include cats but do provide a great low-cost resource to acquire them during the course.
