P1: 8-Hour Moulage Workshop - $395 / $325

Come learn to create life-like three-dimensional wounds that can be sutured, debrided, and triaged for a realistic training experience. The presenter will identify SIM-Safe make-up and training techniques to create common Medical, Trauma and All Hazards conditions. Learn to understand moulage wound development when creating soft tissue wounds and accessory moulage utilizing gels, Silifix, latex and waxes. Participants will learn basic, intermediate, advanced and medical trauma moulage wounds application including surgical dehiscence, ulcers, burns, lacerations and active shooter


 A1: Intro to Moulage - $30

Learn the basics in SIM-Safe make-up identification, use and industry secrets to create common medical conditions. The presenter will identify and evaluate benefits and limitations in moulage application, storage use, pre-make and staging procedures to save time and money. Get hands-on with basic moulage wound development and applications including vomitus, wound drainage, sputum, fresh bruising and appliance.

Learning Objectives:

  • Identify useful moulage materials
  • Demonstrate proper moulage preparation and cleanup techniques
  • Describe methods for creating simulated woulds and bodily fluids


C1: Training for Trauma Moulage Workshop - $30

This presentation will identify SIMSafe make-up application and industry techniques to creating developed trauma conditions. In addition, the presenter will identify and evaluate benefits and limitations in moulage application, storage use, pre-make and staging procedures to save time and money. Lastly, the presenter will demonstrate intermediate moulage wound development and applications including blisters, burns, impalement, tactile and olfactory application.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe proper moulage preparation techniques
  • Contrast benefits and disadvantages of different moulage techniques
  • Describe methods for creating trauma moulage


G5: EMS/Active Shooter Multi Agency Response

The goal of this session is to develop an understanding to introductory MCI staging events and collaborative planning. Participants will learn the basics in MCI moulage application techniques, storage, pre-make and staging procedures. By the conclusion of the presentation, learners will be able to evaluate the benefits and limitations in scenario staging and story progression in MCI events.

Learning Objectives:

  • Describe the challenges of staging active shooter scenarios
  • Identify the materials that can create an active shooter scenarios
  • Evaluate the benefits and limitations to staging active shooter scenarios
