‚ÄčHow to register

The HNE Simulation Centre offers more than 65 different courses including instructor training and advanced communications programs. These courses include inter-professional team training focussing on communication, leadership, decision-making and resource management, specialised skills training, including advanced airway skills, and niche courses for defined groups e.g. procedural sedation training for endoscopists. In addition, we offer bespoke courses tailor made for specific participant groups.

We review each request to register for a course individually to ensure participants are enrolling in the course best suited to their needs.

Cancellation policy


In response to COVID-19 outbreak our cancellation policy has been amended :

If you are a course participant or an instructor, please do not present to the HNESC if you are unwell with a respiratory illness.  This includes people with low-grade fever (37.3 C or more).  Please remain at home if you have had to take simple medications, such as paracetamol/acetaminophen, ibuprofen or aspirin, which may mask symptoms of infection.

Participant cancellations

Course participants who need to withdraw from a simulation course due to respiratory illness should contact us as soon as possible via telephone or email.  Our staff will refund your registration, or assist you with transferring your course booking to an alternate date. In the event that the course was mandated or required for you, the HNE Simulation Centre Management will help identify an alternate course and/or liaise with relevant management or supervisors if necessary.

If our course instructors become unwell, we may need to postpone or cancel simulation activities.  The HNESC will contact course participants to advise if a simulation activity will be postponed or cancelled at the earliest available opportunity.
