As an existing course centre, you already know you are offering quality, standardised courses to your candidates. But many centres don't realise how easy it would be to offer a larger range of courses using the existing instructor base. ALSG instructors are already eligible or can easily convert to instruct on other ALSG courses. For example:
It may therefore be easier than you thought to run other ALSG courses with the instructors in your area.
If you are interested in running other ALSG courses, we have provided a copy of the Programme, Regulations, Equipment list and Order Form for each course below for your information.
ALSG and individual course Working Groups support the establishment of new course centres and there are several models available. The ALSG models provide course centres with:
All ALSG courses have a core model and you can read more about how to run one of our courses here. We have provided a copy of the Programme, Regulations, Equipment list and Order Form for each course below for your information.
ALSG and the individual Working Groups are happy to support countries that wish to start a national training programme to deliver any ALSG course and we have two delivery methods to allow us to achieve this. Each of the two methods carry different responsibilities for ALSG and the course centre; these are detailed in this responsibilities document.
The two delivery methods are as follows:
For this method, ALSG will arrange and facilitate a course as requested. Countries will not be able to run future courses unaided by ALSG after a Demonstration course. We would only suggest this approach if you are not certain that the provider course is appropriate or if you do not have an on-going training need or if you need a GIC after running your own provider courses for some time.
This is the method that we have found to be most successful in establishing courses overseas. It involves a group of experienced instructors from the UK travelling to your centre overseas, to run a provider course for anticipated instructors followed by a GIC course for those same candidates, followed by two provider courses in which they will teach as an instructor candidate.

As many clinicians are involved in the transfer of different patient groups, we have merged our existing STaR and PaNSTaR courses into an all-encompassing transfer course entitled NAPSTaR, thus providing a structured approach for neonatal, adult and paediatric transfers. The 2-day course includes lectures, skill stations and simulations.Candidates who have taken the course are Paediatric Registrars, Transport Nurses, Anaesthetists.
