TeamSTEPPS Specialty Courses

Specialty courses offered by AHA Team Training are topic-focused learning opportunities where participants will expand their skill sets for successfully implementing and sustaining TeamSTEPPS in their organizations. Designed for those already familiar with TeamSTEPPS tools and strategies, specialty courses are generally recommended for those who have completed a Master Training Course or equivalent. Location, length, and registration fee will vary by course.

Gaming in TeamSTEPPS: Where to Begin?

November 9, 2018 | Orlando, FL

Learn how TeamSTEPPS tools can be applied to a group of activities to develop and implement team strategies that will achieve the successful transfer of knowledge. This specialty course is designed around active participation and is meant to provide TeamSTEPPS facilitators with alternative ways to deliver in-person TeamSTEPPS training and education.

What to Expect

Participants will experience 10-12 games and activities first hand. Course faculty will also work one-on-one with participants on how to take this interactive learning format back to their organization. Participants will develop and build a TeamSTEPPS training agenda of their own, tailored to their organization and their unique learning needs. 

Who Should Register

It is suggested that those who are competent in TeamSTEPPS tools and principles attend. The faculty will not be teaching or reviewing any of the tools. While individuals are welcome, we suggest attending with a team. We found that this helps in terms of support when returning home in addition to fostering innovation among team members.
