- Attendance at a provider course and selection for IP

- Attendance of a relevant Instructor Course (or recognised equivalent as outlined in the conversion section)

- Successful completion of teaching practice(s).

  • After successful completion of an Instructor Course, all ICs are required to teach on two Provider courses to the satisfaction of the CD before FI status is granted and a certificate issued. If, however, upon the completion of the first course as IC, the Provider CD and faculty unanimously recommend that a second assessment is unnecessary, an exception can be requested to the Self-Sufficient National Resuscitation Council or the ICC Chair upon entering the results in the CMS.
  • If, after 2 courses as IC, the candidate has not reached the required standard, an additional opportunity to serve on another course as an IC may be offered. Alternatively, the CD may decide to revoke the candidate’s IC status.
  • While teaching, an IC should always be supervised by a FI.
  • Where possible, an IC should gain experience teaching and assessing each of the different teaching and assessment methods.
  • The IC must be present for the entire Provider course.
  • ICs should be given feedback on their performance in all teaching sessions by FI nominated by the CD. These assessments must be discussed with the IC.
  • An IC should complete both teaching practice(s) within 2 years of the date of their relevant instructor course, unless exceptional circumstances prevent this. It is possible for this period to be extended to 3 years following application by the IC to the ERC office, to be approved by the relevant ICC chair.
  • Existing FIs who are recommended as having IP on a different course type may proceed directly to IC status for that course type. They then need to teach on only one course to the satisfaction of the CD in order to become FI of the new course type.
  • Existing ICs who are recommended as having IP on a different course type may proceed directly to Instructor Candidate status for that course type, they then need to teach on two courses to the satisfaction of the CD in order to become FI of the new course type.
