Senior Instructor course - Simulation exercising in Disaster Medicine

Senior Instructor course - Simulation exercising in Disaster Medicine

One important part in disaster medicine is training of the ability to make accurate decisions.
Training of this requires educated instructors that can practice and evaluate performances of different categories of staff involved in the medical management of disasters and major incidents. These instructors should also be familiar in using simulations exercises based on real scenarios, with realistic resources, real capacity of different medical facilities and should be using real time when performing the training sessions.
One way of achieving this is by using the Emergo Train system® (ETS), a simulation system that can be designed to fit any scenario in any setting and has been used for training and simulation in disaster medicine in several countries the last decades.

An Emergo Train System Senior Instructor is the responsible for setting up the course objectives and ensuring they are adequately achieved. An ETS Senior Instructor has successfully completed the applicable courses at the international ETS Competence Centre in Sweden or one of the certified ETS Educator faculties in Finland, Australia, UK, Italy, The Netherlands, Japan, Korea, United Arab Emirates or New Zealand. There are (Dec 2018) over 2000 certified ETS Senior instructors from 40 countries. This includes 299 new Senior instructors that was certified during 2018.
