Education is central to NZATS’ mission
Anaesthesia is a fast-paced, expanding field where maintenance of clinical competence relies of constant professional development. It is a requirement of our registration to maintain our continuing professional development.
NZATS work closely with tertiary institutions like AUT that provide pathways for students looking to become anaesthetic technicians. We also provide educational resources to students as they study, as well as our Student and Trainee memberships. Continuing education is central to an anaesthetic technician’s career, so we have also developed a CPD (continuous professional development) portal for our members.
Not only a requirement for an APC, education provides and supports life-long learning for all practitioners. Good patient outcomes and protection of patients who use our services are fundamental and critical to our knowledge and practice.
