AHA Team Training Courses

The Cornerstone of AHA’s Team Training Program, the Master Training Course is a focused, two-day learning experience with a train-the-trainer approach.

Participants are equipped with TeamSTEPPS® fundamentals, as well as skills and resources for training and coaching peers on the behaviors needed to achieve positive results. This course is taught by — and produces — Master Trainers.

Team Strategies and Tools to Enhance Performance and Patient Safety (TeamSTEPPS) is an evidence-based set of teamwork tools designed to optimize team function, and ultimately patient outcomes. The Master Training Course is a 2-day in person course with an orientation to train-the-trainer utilizing games, scenarios and activities. This approach allows participants to experience and learn the TeamSTEPPS fundamental content, and provides established resources and the skills to create training strategies, events and learning experiences. This course is taught by, and produces, Master Trainers.
