ALS Facilitator Workshop

Training and Re-certification of ALS Instructors


The ALS Facilitator Workshop is a combined online/skills workshop program developed to train and re-certify ALS instructors. The workshop provides the opportunity for facilitators to achieve confidence and demonstrate competency in teaching the core skills of ALS, and become familiar with simulation and skill assessment. Satisfactory completion of a LearnEM or ARC ALS 2 course within the preceding 12 months is a prerequisite for attending the ALS Facilitators Course.

Topics include:

  • Planning and delivering an ALS workshop

  • Understanding adult learners

  • Approaches to the delivery of workshop teaching pre-learning/post-learning resources

  • Strategies for managing the problematic candidate

  • Planning and delivery of procedural skills stations

  • Running a clinical simulation – role, planning, delivery and feedback

  • Participant assessment/certification of skills

  • Course evaluation and self-reflection

The course is delivered in a supportive learning environment, using interactive online pre-learning to cover core knowledge skills and a one day workshop for procedural skills and simulation training.
