Level 3 Healthcare just wrapped up their first annual Simulation Operations Bootcamp that I was happy to attend. It was an all inclusive, intimate three days held at their headquarters in Mesa, AZ.
The Level 3 team, including Scott Atkinson, David Escobar, Lenny Convis and Brandon Phillips, did a great job delivering courses that include:
Engineering & Design
AV Simulation System Installations
Setting Up Simulation Systems
RFP and Purchasing Process
Simulation Center Design
The Educational Matrix Standard
Advancing the Operation Specialist Role
Job Skill Requirements
Simulation Center Training
As you can see on their website, it was a great success and they will be hosting another Bootcamp next year from April 14 - 16, 2020.
Speaking of Level 3, on May 8th they are hosting a video webinar. The topic is "Cheap & Simple Moulage Hacks for the Everyday SimTech". You can signup via their invite here.
Over on NLNTEQ they have a 7 part series on simulation operations you might be interested in reading:

Matthew Jubelius shared this little article written from the viewpoint of a Canadian company collaborating with a US company. A success story on how collaboration across borders is helping the simulation community.
Amoveo Training, Inc., a Canadian firm with national healthcare simulation training expertise, designs and manufactures customized simulation-based education products from skills trainers to wearable moulage. American company, B & G Educational Innovations, LLC (BGEI), is globally recognized for high physical fidelity and high-quality realism in their ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim medical and veterinary clinical simulation training product lines. In the summer of 2018, the two companies began collaborating to develop a new subdermal layer insert to improve the realism of simulated IV training in ReaLifeSim and VetReaLifeSim wearable hybrid IV training simulation products.
Over the next six months, “subdermal layer” prototypes were created, lab tested, and subsequently field tested for durability, realism, and ease of positioning the layer within the IV trainers among the healthcare, veterinarian and aerospace communities. Amoveo Training released the final version of the subdermal layer for purchase in January 2019, as the exclusive manufacturer and distributor.
