National cardiac life support training program initiated in October 2016, it is a systematic approach to management of a victim of cardiac arrest. The program aimed to address the training needs of a junior physician such as the one undergoing postgraduate medical education and other health-care professionals. It is a 2-day “hands-on” course that recommends an instructor–candidate ratio of 1:6 and limits the number of candidates to 30 per session to maintain adequate mentee–mentor interaction, monitoring, and evaluation. This program is developed in collaboration with Society for Emergency Medicine in India, Indian College of Anesthesiologists, Indian College of Cardiology, and Association of Healthcare Providers India. In addition, this program has been endorsed by West Bengal University and National Board of Examinations, New Delhi. Currently, The Simulation Society which deals with online teaching simulation has lent its support by endorsing this program.
