We recommend the following resuscitation requirement levels:
• CORE Immediate / previously: CORE level 5 assessed – Required for GP Fellowship.
• CORE Skills / previously: CORE level 5 non-assessed – Required three-yearly at a minimum for all registrars on the GPEP training programme (except for those undergoing Fellowship assessment). A list of College-endorsed resuscitation providers can be found here.
The College counts ACLS certificates as valid for three years. For example, if your certificate states you completed the course (or received the certificate) in March 2016, this means it will be valid until March 2019.
We ask all applicants to upload their ACLS certificate, if current, to the online application form and enter the date you received your certificate.
If your ACLS certificate is out of date, please still enter the date you received your most current certificate. Rather than uploading your out-of-date certificate, you can instead upload your ACLS booking confirmation. We will consider it valid and will expect your up-to-date certificate before placements are confirmed in August.
