The 1st NorthSimTechDay took place on Thursday 26th January 2017 in The Living Lab at the University of Sunderland.

The day was brilliant and all those attending agreed that the day and the programme content was really useful to their roles, with the additional opportunities to network, gain skills and knowledge and meet like-minded techs!

Our thanks to Laerdal Medical for their sponsorship and workshop and SimBodies Global for demonstrating their bodies and moulage expertise!

Further provisional dates and venues listed below

With the recent developments that will enable a route to professional registration and greater recognition of the role and expertise of simulation technicians and technologists, it has become vitally important that there is consistent availability and access to training and networking events to support initial Science Council applications and CPD. 

For this to happen we need hosts, venues, sponsors and experts to run and coordinate national and regional events

Please note: If you are planning or coordinating an event and would be willing to include a technician specific theme/stream/workshop/session please communicate your thoughts and let us know. Contact details below

The aim is for the majority of events to remain Free of Charge but obviously that relies heavily on support etc.being offered
All offers of assistance gratefully received – please talk to your Regional TECH Champion and/or Jane Nicklin jane.nicklin@simsupport.me.uk
