Instructor Trainer is the Rescue 3 International’s highest level instructor qualification. These people have extensive technical experience in the discipline, as well as extensive teaching experience. Instructor Trainers deliver instructor level courses, and every level of course in that discipline. Instructor trainers also support new instructors, and have the ability to do instructor sign-offs. They are also qualified to participate in curriculum development and sit on course development committees.
