AHA Team Training Regional Training Centers

Our Regional Training Centers (RTCs) are centers of excellence in TeamSTEPPS. The RTCs are staffed by highly dedicated faculty, all who possess the knowledge, skills and attitudes that have been identified for Master Trainers as specified in existing TeamSTEPPS training materials. These Master Trainer teams are comprised of physicians, nurses, other allied health professionals, educators, and experts in organizational change management. The clinical team members represent a mix of disciplines and specialties that often correspond to the TeamSTEPPS domains used at their hospitals.
