Getting Started Courses

Get the right start with your simulation program with this one-day, on-site course covering both simulator and educational topics.

Everything you need to get the right start

If you are new to simulation or need to get up to speed on a new simulator, this course is for you. The Getting Started course introduces you to the basic functions of your simulator. Hands-on activities help your team become familiar with the simulator and how to be operational.

The course includes learning startup and shut down procedures, how to navigate the instructor application, patient monitor and instructor device operations, and the features of your simulator. After the course, you should be ready to start using your simulator for simulation-based education.

What you'll learn

  • General operating functions
  • System components
  • Simulator features
  • How to start and shut down properly
  • Run simulations using the patient monitor
  • Debriefing systems
  • Operating modes of the Learning Application software

I liked the hands-on training and it was great to practice our skills afterwards to see if we grasped the information.
