“Train the Trainer” approach

This is a SLEEC instructor course that is available to students who already have an SLEEC provider qualification.


This ‘train the trainer’ bolt-on allows SLEEC Instructors to cascade training within their organisation under a Trauma Resus licence, with continued support and clinical governance from our team.


Once trained, and subject to Trauma Resus’ licencing and clinical governance, new SLEEC Instructors can begin delivering the SLEEC course to their own candidates.


Aim of this course

The aim of this course is to give SLEEC providers the necessary skills and knowledge to effectively deliver SLEEC provider courses and ongoing maintenance of skills training.

Course delivery

The SLEEC instructor course is delivered as a 2 day initial instructor programme for students who already have an SLEEC provider qualification. Typically these 2 days follow directly after the 3 day initial SLEEC provider course.

Upon completion of the course, students are awarded an SLEEC Instructor certificate (valid for one year).
