Audio/Visual Technology 

HSTS800  - Advanced Video Editing Techniques [Register Now] ($50.00)

Looking to produce your own simulation lab orientation or promotional video? With this course, those champions with minimal editing experience will gain valuable insights to increase production efficiency and maximize audience engagement. Learn about pacing video editing, average shot lengths, avoid common errors, and learn how small, almost invisible changes, can lead to big impacts on the quality and message or your video pieces. 


HSTS300  - Introduction to Physiology [Register Now] ($50.00)

The human body may be viewed as a system with constantly changing inputs and outputs. When existing systems fail to maintain body functions within normal limits, clinical signs and symptoms appear and the patient may become ill. Healthcare professionals (HCPs) are trained to recognize, interpret and respond to these changes in a way that helps bring the system back into balance. 

Simulation technologists manipulate the simulation environment to mimic clinical situations. In so doing, sim techs provide an opportunity for HCPs to practice and improve their skills in a supportive and safe learning environment. This course is designed as a basic review of physiology for sim techs with little or no medical background.

HSTS301  - Introduction to Cardiac Rhythms [Register Now] ($50.00)

The Cardiac Rhythms course reviews the basic physiology of the cardiovascular system. The course opens with a discussion of myocardial cell function and how electrical signals are generated within the myocardium. The pathway of electrical conduction is traced through the chambers of the heart and is related to the contraction of the chambers. Mechanisms that control cardiac function are reviewed. The theory behind 12 lead Electrocardiography is outlined. Basic cardiac rhythms analysis is discussed. Normal sinus rhythm, atrial dysrthymias, heart blocks and ventricular dysrthymias are reviewed. The treatment of the dysrthymias is outlined. The pathophysiology, assessment and basic treatment of myocardial infarct (heart attack) is discussed. 

 Information Technology

HSTS402  - Network Models, Cabling, & Topologies [Register Now] ($50.00)

This is a presentation/discussion workshop designed to introduce the major concepts behind of information technology networking and the systems, components, and software that make it possible. Students will begin to acquire technical knowledge that is critical to the management, administration, proper maintenance, and care of information technology networks. Learning outcomes are associated with the CompTIA Network+ Certification N10-005, and elements of the CHSOS exam from SSH.


*NEW* HSTS5101 Fundamentals of Training and Education [Register Now] ($50.00)

This course is designed to give a broad overview of adult education, simulation education, simulation modalities and provide practical application of adult learning principles to the role of the Simulation Technologist. For those of you who are involved in or would like to know more about scenario development or debriefing, other SimGHOSTS courses will go into more detail about adult education theory and application, simulation methodology, instructional design, and simulation debriefing models.

HSTS7100 - Basic Programming for Laerdal 3G [Register Now] ($50.00)

This 2-hour course covers basic programming theory, tools and techniques for the Laerdal platform. In part one, we cover the concepts and techniques for planning out a proper programmed scenario; these are general skills that apply to any high-, low- or no-fidelity simulation scenario. Focus is placed on communication with the entire simulation team, from students to staff to administrators to faculty.
