Become a PHECC Cardiac First Responder Community Instructor

Our Cardiac First Responder Community Instructor training course is designed to follow the national standards for CFR Community Instructors laid down by the Pre-Hospital Emergency Care Council (PHECC). All of our tutors for this course are recognized to teach and carry out examinations to set standards.

It will ensure demonstrable competency in the practical conduct of CFR Courses. The ‘training for trainers’ section of this course will enable delegates to deliver training which is specifically tailored to the standards laid down by PHECC.

How do I become a CFR Community Instructor?

A pre-requisite for entry onto a CFR Community Instructor course is that an individual has completed a CFR Community training course or a First Aid Response Certificate course within the last 12 months. The minimum age to become a CFR Community Instructor is 18 years of age.

PHECC CFR Assessment

To complete the PHECC CFR Community Instructor Assessment, students will be required to assist on one CFR course, be supervised on the 2nd CFR course and be assessed by or on behalf of PHECC on the 3rd course.
