The Instructor process will provide an overview of how to become an RCUK Instructor. The Instructor process varies depending on the course, so please read the descriptions below to ensure you are familiar with the correct process for your course.
Generic Instructor Course (GIC):
After successful completion of the course, you become an 'Instructor Candidate' (IC) for your provider course. You must complete two teaching practices as an IC in order to become a full Instructor. The time limit to complete these teaching practices is two years from the date of the GIC, although a time extension may be granted in certain circumstances on written request.
You may be directed to certain 'named centre(s)’ to complete your teaching practices. This is so you can be supported by a member of the faculty and may mean you returning to the centre where you did the GIC or to a centre nearby.
Immediate Life Support Instructor (ILSi) course:
After successful completion of the ILSi course, you become an ‘Instructor Candidate’ (IC)for your provider course. You must complete two teaching practices as an IC in order to become a full Instructor. The time limit to complete these teaching practices is one year from the date of the ILSi.
