To help you quickly master the power of the RespiSim® System, we offer hands-on training at your facility, as well as virtual training, conducted via web conference.

Training is conducted by one of our Clinical Educators: Jessica Dietz, MS, RRT-ACCS; or Justina Gerard, BSRC, MBA, RRT.

An IngMar Medical technical product specialist will walk you through the initial set up of the equipment several days in advance of the training to ensure that all systems are go.

Earn Continuing Education Credits

Both our customer-site and virtual training courses have been approved for Continuing Respiratory Care Education (CRCE) credit by the American Association for Respiratory Care. They may also be submitted for recertification for the Society for Simulation in Healthcare’s Certified Healthcare Simulation Educator (CHSE) and CHSOS (Certified Healthcare Simulation Operations Specialist) professional certification.
