Continuing Professional Development (short course)
The ILS instructor Course (ILSi) helps develop effective teaching skills for ILS instructors.
Once instructor skills are learned they will need to be developed with continuing practice and experience.
The course includes lectures, demos, skills practice, scenario teaching and role play. Assessment is continuous throughout the course. Successful candidates will receive a Resuscitation Council (UK) ILS instructor certificate, which is valid for four years. To maintain instructor status, you're required to teach on a minimum of two ILS courses per year, or one ILS course and two ILS recertification courses.

The Faculty of Health, Education, Medicine and Social Care is the largest in ARU, with over 7,000 students. Our Faculty is teeming with expertise and primed to meet the demand for creating health professionals, teachers, doctors, scientists and educators for the three districts we serve: Chelmsford, Cambridge and Peterborough.
We have been training undergraduates for professional roles for over 25 years, with a reputation for quality, dedication and ambition balanced with student satisfaction.
We know that to give our students the very best experiential learning, prior to getting into the workplace, simulation is second to none, for safe, realistic, learning environments. We have invested heavily in purpose built simulated wards, science labs and skills space, to support our students through their learning.
Only candidates who have been recommended as having instructor potential (IP) from their ILS course can attend. ALS providers can be nominated provided they meet the selection criteria. The ILSi course must be undertaken within two years of the date of the provider course.
