Master Training Course at a Regional Training Center

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.
