Upskilling the Technical Workforce for Simulation



Upskilling the technical workforce.

Our new portfolio of courses is designed for the technical workforce, including healthcare technicians, educators and related personnel.

The AQ clinical skills report from the 2013 national survey highlighted the generic skills that were needed by clinical skills and simulation technicians to ensure sustainability and future proofing of healthcare learning environments.  These include; audio visual, IT, equipment management, partners with trade, casualty make up and moulage, and wet lab.

We are delighted to meet the needs of this sector by providing a range of training courses. To book your place on any of these course please visit our online store.

We are also developing two further courses with our industry partners, details of which will be available shortly.

  • Care and maintenance of dental phantom heads.
  • Basic simulator maintenance.
