CFR-AI Advanced Instructor
a) The minimum age for entry to a CFR Advanced instructor course is
b) Certification in CFR Advanced within the last 12 months. Note that access to a CFR Advanced course is for persons practicing (volunteering or working) in EMS, fire and rescue services and for healthcare professionals. This is even more important when individuals (CFR Advanced certified) are seeking access to CFR Advanced Instructor courses. If there are any concerns about the individuals capacity to maintain competency in all the required CFR Advanced skills (in particular airway management) PHECC strongly recommends that CFR Community Instructor level is more appropriate. This applies to healthcare and non-healthcare professionals equally.
Duration: The CFR Instructor Standard is set out in full in the Teaching Faculty Framework. The CFR Instructor Standard includes tuition in instructional methods (IM) and a period of supervised teaching practice. The IM component is no less than 2 days/12 hours. It can be delivered on a full time or part-time/modular basis. The period of supervised teaching practice is not specified and may be extended until the specific learning outcomes are achieved. The typical pathway is to assist on the first course, part teach the second and deliver a third independently while being monitored.
Ratio: The ratio of CFR instructor trainers to students is 1:6 with and equipment to student ratio of 1:3 (equipment includes manikin and AED).
Assessment of CFR Advanced provider and instructor skills for student instructors will be undertaken by a CFR instructor trainer using a standard CFR Advanced provider and Instructor evaluation form/s. Assessment must occur as the student instructor progresses through the period of supervised teaching practice.
