1.6 Operating Theatre Protocols 2020-2022 Update



Due to the high volume of participants in MTAA training courses and an update in the training software, some courses may experience technical issues or may not be available at this time.

We are working on the issue and hope to have all our courses up and running very soon.

This Two (2) hour self-paced online learning module provides a review of 2020 the Australian College of Operating Room Nurses (ACORN) Standards for Perioperative Nursing and an opportunity to investigate relevant industry issues. Participants will receive a downloadable Certificate of Participation with photo ID valid to 31 October 2022 upon successful completion of the training. 

This training will expire on 31st October 2022 and participants will be required to complete new training on the updated standards.

All Medical Company representatives (MCRs) wanting to enter the perioperative environment should complete the training, Module 1.5 Introduction to Operating Theatre Protocols - the recommended pre-requisite training.
