Position Statement on disabled candidates attending Resuscitation Council (UK) courses
Candidates with disabilities are eligible to undertake Resuscitation Council (UK) ("RC (UK)") life support courses. The Disability Discrimination Act 1995 was introduced to end discrimination against the disabled. It places duties on service providers not to discriminate against, and to make reasonable adjustments to their policies and procedures for those with disabilities to avoid any discriminatory impact.
The RC (UK) recognises its obligations in this field and will do everything it can to assist those with a disability, and will ask its course providers to do the same. Candidates should notify the Course Director of any disability before the start of the course and the Course Director should then make reasonable efforts to accommodate the candidate's requirements. For example, the course provider may be able to make changes to the physical surroundings or, if a disabled candidate is physically unable to undertake a task, it may be possible to allow the candidate to instruct a proxy instead. However, any such changes made by the provider should not cause a deterioration in the experience or training of the other candidates.
