GIC candidate hub

Hi ,

Welcome to the APLS GIC candidate hub.

The APLS GIC aims to support you with a structured approach for teaching and orientation to the APLS instructor community

This hub has all the information you need to prepare for the GIC face-to-face program. 

Allow time (6-8 hours) for pre-course preparation.  This includes preparing for six different teaching sessions that you will lead for a small group of peers.

We are really keen that you gain as much as you can from this opportunity to learn from practicing so please make contact with Jane Stanford if you have any questions about what is expected of you.
