Lincoln wax, applied in a light coat using a brush or dauber.
Allow to dry (hint, first boot dries while applying polish to second boot)
Buff with a soft brush (second boot dries while buffing the first)
Takes all of about 20 minutes once every few months.
Use the time gained by not spitshining boots to study your next achievement.

Contact one of the local volunteer fire departments that are a training center, explain who you are and that you would to become an instructor and run classes under their training center for your unit. You would need to take the instructor class again. Don't forget about the instructor student ratio, either.

Without some kind of intro by a mutually affiliated/known person the likelihood of success of this model is low.  For a multitude of reasons.  First is just the random guy shows up and says this this and this and wants something basically for free.  Secondly, everyone's area is different:  In my current area for example, 99% of the fire departments don't do anything medical except assist EMS, so they have usually minimal medical training as well, let alone be their own training site for any kind of first aid training.  If you find one, you are still likely to have to pay for the classes, instructor certification etc.  I would say top end they may agree to provide the training to the squadron at a limited cost.  Maybe eventually they might come around to allowing someone(s) from the local unit become an instructor once they get to know them. But, that's a big maybe; and likely a relationship cultivated after numerous courses and coordination (aka years)

Using that model, you are basically more likely to find assistance from a BSA troop or crew for their Wilderness First Aid certification from ECSI; but same thing, the likelihood that the local troop/crew is the actual training center vs the local council is also low and they aren't likely to allow you to be an instructor free reign under them.  (more of a mutual exchange of assistance, they provide first aid in exchange CAP helps provides assistance with SAR or aviation merit badge sort of deal)

Salute and execute as appropriate.

Eclipse, have ever had to clean suede boots? They are far from "maintenance free".

So then matte black tacticals - done

I always find it odd that people who spend the most time bloviating about how shining footwear has some terrific character-building quality wear corfams.

I wear corfram low-quarters.

You won't hear me talking about "character building" when it comes to boot shining (or ironing my shirts).  Nope.

Its a detail, just like the other stuff.

I brush shine boots and spit shine low quarters.  Neither is very time consuming at this point.
