On-Site Training

We understand that sometimes sending your clinicians and technologists off to a course just does not work for your practice.  Between booking flights, and finding locums – especially when there are multiple members of your team that all want access to the same quality training, as a busy hospital manager, it’s a daunting challenge!  This is where On-Site Training comes in handy!  Our team loves to travel and will come to your clinic, on your schedule, and train as many of your staff members as needed – ALL AT THE SAME TIME.
