•  A CDC is an experienced instructor who is invited to shadow the CD.
  • In order to be eligible to be selected as a CDC, an Instructor needs to have taught on at least 4 entire courses of the same type as FI and be invited to act as CDC on a course by a CD.
  • Once a FI has been selected as CDC they need to complete at least 2 courses, within 2 years and preferably with 2 different CDs, of the same type as CDC to the satisfaction of the CD before they can be upgraded to CD.
  • The upgrade to CD needs the approval of the National Resuscitation Council of the CDC’s residency, self-sufficient for that type of course or, in the absence of that, by the Chairman of the ERC International Course Committee of that course.
  • A course can have maximum 1 CDC.
  • The CDC must be present throughout the entire course.
