The New Zealand Resuscitation Council trains CORE Instructors to provide CORE training to health professionals.
If you are a health professional looking to attend a CORE training, you will need to find a CORE Provider. Find out more.
The CORE Instructor Course is a two-day course offered at CORE Levels 6 and 7 only. CORE Instructors at Levels 6 and 7 are also able to instruct at CORE Levels 4 and 5.
Candidates on the CORE Instructor Course are required to demonstrate satisfactory acquisition of theoretical knowledge and performance of simulated practical skills. The course is facilitated by a six week period of self-directed learning, attendance at a course of practical skill development and formal assessment. The course also involves instruction and assessment of teaching of skill stations and scenarios.

Attendance does not guarantee a candidate being offered certification as a CORE instructor. Candidates are assessed throughout the course on their theoretical knowledge of resuscitation, attitude towards teaching, interest in resuscitation, confidence and abilities as a teacher, and support of the New Zealand Resuscitation Council’s educational philosophy.
The Instructor Course Director will notify all candidates of their results within one week of completing the course. The Instructor Course Director will also provide successful candidates with a Code of Conduct. This needs to be completed and returned to the National Administration Coordinator.
By this time, successful candidates should be familiar with the Pathway to CORE Instructor Status. New instructors will be required to participate in three CORE provider courses per year to maintain their instructor status. During their first year as a CORE Instructor, candidates cannot fulfil the role of a CORE Provider Course Director.
Candidates who are unsuccessful may be invited to register for a future course and pay full course fees.
