Course structure and programme
GICs are held at centres throughout
Europe, and are spreading to centres in North-Africa, the Middle East and Far East. Organised
by the local Resuscitation Councils or Course Organisers with GIC permisisons, the courses are standardised, approved and
certified by the ERC. This ensures standardisation, uniformity of content,
teaching strategy, and formative assessment regardless of the centre. The GIC
may be run in the national languages of the respective country that they are held in,
or in English.

All workshops are preceded by demonstrations
of the expected competence and by interactive discussion of the topics. Assessment of the
GIC candidates is formative thoughout the course, with feedback provided by the
instructor trainers. The GIC does not finish with a summative final test.
