Cataldo Ambulance is excited to offer the latest addition to our Education Department: the Laerdal SimMan® Essential. This is an advanced patient simulator that can display neurological symptoms as well as physiological symptoms. A library of lung, heart and bowel sounds, as well as fully interactive vital signs can be assessed by the clinician to deliver the most realistic training possible.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training.
Virtual Instructor-Led Training (VILT) refers to training that is delivered in a virtual environment, or when instructor and learner are in separate locations. Virtual instruction environments are designed to simulate the traditional classroom or learning experience. VILT can be conducted synchronously or asynchronously. The term is also referred to as Virtual Classroom Training (VCT). VILT is one of the fastest growing methods of internet-based learning delivery.
VILT provides an engaging experience in which participants can connect with the content and interact with both the instructor and other classmates. Successful implementations, visible through high retention rates and satisfied learners, demonstrate that VILT delivery can be both effective and efficient.
