Generic Instructor Course
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. The GIC teaches the knowledge and skills required to understand the nature of teaching and learning, understand the needs of individual learner, understand the awareness of the four domains of learning and undertake the various types of teaching sessions on the provider courses.
