Generic Instructor Course (GIC)

Course Dates 2024:

The Generic Instructor Course (GIC) is a standardised national course teaching the principles of adult learning and is a joint collaboration between the Resuscitation Council (UK) and the Advanced Life Support Group (ALSG). A revised course including an e-learning component was launched in 2014.

Who is eligible to attend this course?
Only candidates who have been recommended as having instructor potential (IP) from their provider course (e.g. ALS, NLS, APLS, MIMMS) can attend the GIC. The GIC must be undertaken within four years from the date of the provider course.

Learning outcomes- The GIC teaches the knowledge and skills required to:

  • understand the nature of teaching and learning;
  • understand the needs of individual learners;
  • understand the awareness of the four domains of learning;
  • undertake the various types of teaching sessions on the provider courses.

The course is the equivalent to a 3-day course, one day of which consists of a number of eLearning modules which must be completed prior to the two day face-to-face element of the course.

The course programme consists of lectures, workshops, skill stations and teaching simulations.
