Simulation-based training: why and how

Simulation-based training teaches students and professionals skills needed in their profession. The training provides a real life experience. It is widely applied in fields such as aviation, the military, and healthcare. A well-constructed simulation allows trainees to answer the question, “If I do this, what happens?"

This webinar will show it starts with learning skills as a student, but does not stop when you work as a professional. Simulation-based training educates, assesses performance, enables to practice new tools or methods, and improves teamwork and communication. We will also show the importance of using video feedback & debriefing as tools in the learning process.
