Registration for Instructor Training

The two-day NetworkZ Instructors Course is designed to prepare participants to run NetworkZ at their DHB. Each DHB are asked to send 4-6 multidisciplinary staff who will be instructors and/or technical faculty. This will create a core group to implement the programme locally. There is the capacity to have a second group of instructors to ensure there are sufficient instructors for the size of the DHB.

Day 1: Immersive scenarios, debriefs and activities that the instructors will be replicating at DHBs.

Day 2: Debriefing, an introduction to human factors, and small group activities looking at challenges and processes for NetworkZ training at the individual DHBs.

You will need to coordinate the participants with the local convenor - we suggest a team or group come together to have a shared experience at the training. After your place has been confirmed locally as an instructor or technician please contact our Course Administrator, Theresa Nathan at - to find out the dates and availability of places for 2018.
