- The objective of training is to give the learner the ability to undertake resuscitation in a real clinical situation
at the level at which they would be expected to perform, be they lay bystander, first responder in the community
or hospital, a healthcare professional working in an acute area, or a member of the medical emergency or cardiac
arrest response team.
- The courses are taught by trained instructors who have undertaken an ERC course in teaching and assessment.
Teaching is conducted using encouragement and constructive feedback on performance.
First names are encouraged among both faculty and candidates to reduce apprehension, and the mentor/mentee
system is used to enhance feedback and support for the candidate. Stress is inevitable, particularly during
assessment, but the aim of the instructors is to enable the candidates to do their best.
