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.

Thanks to our close relationships with the major clinical-care providers in the east of England, there are significant opportunities for collaboration and student placements across a variety of clinical sites.
We offer exciting opportunities for research and education in the allied health professions. We also translate science and epidemiology into health education and primary care, and deliver taught Master’s programmes to qualified medics. We have a flourishing community of PhD and MD(Res) students across all of our research fields.
Our advanced learning facilities include state-of-the-art clinical skills laboratories and simulation suites, which mirror real-life clinical situations. We also have a fantastic, modern library and a wide range of science labs and ICT suites.
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.
