e-ILS courses are held at centres throughout the UK and are approved and certified by the Resuscitation Council (UK). This ensures a uniformity of content and standard regardless of the centre.
The e-ILS course is a half-day e-learning and half-day face-to-face and consists of skills stations and cardiac arrest simulations.
Assessment and Certification
Assessment is continuous and is guided by the assessment forms provided for each core skill (e.g. initial resuscitation and assessment, and airway management). Copies of the assessment forms should be forwarded to the candidate with their manual.
Successful candidates receive a Resuscitation Council (UK) ILS provider certificate, which is valid for one year. The ILS course is recognised for up to 5 continuing professional development (CPD) points.
The manual is sent to candidates two weeks before the start of the course. Candidates are expected to have prepared for the course by reading the manual and completing the pre-course MCQ. Some centres may send candidates an MCQ paper which supports candidate learning.
