How the Course Works
Medical Simulation Technician Training Course
With UND's online Medical Simulator Technician Training course offered in a combination of independent study and on-campus lab format, you can study to be a Medical Simulator Lab Technician. You can work at your own pace from the comfort of your own home to complete the coursework, followed by a two day on-campus lab. You need to successfully complete all coursework prior to coming to campus for the lab.
With independent study courses, you can:
- Enroll at any time
- Learn at your own pace
- Complete lessons on your own schedule
- Pick your preferred time and place for studying

- Are you the kind of person who sticks to schedules?
- Do you have good reading comprehension skills?
