Mock Code Train-the-Trainer

What Is It?

Mock Code Train-the-Trainer is a program in which we teach staff from inpatient and ambulatory care areas how to run a mock code.  At the end of our 90-minute class, the participants will be able to run a "first five minutes" mock code for staff in their area, focusing on:

Recognition of the code

Calling for additional help

Starting high-quality chest compressions

Using the Zoll R-series in AED mode or the Zoll AED3


Update Sessions

Update sessions are mandatory for previously-trained facilitators to continue to be in the Mock Code Train-the-Trainer program.  It provides updates on how to safely run a mock code with the new Zoll monitor-defibrillators.  Facilitators cannot run a mock code until after being in an Update session.

Our first batch of Update sessions are below.  All sessions are in the Life Support Learning Center.
