Train the Trainer Course

Course Information

*** The next course date is pending ***

The core faculty for the Train the Colonoscopy Trainer courses are Drs Jim Brooker and Russell Walmsley.

The venue is  Olympus Live, Albany, Auckland and Waitakere Hospital. Due to the course content we currently do not hold the training outside of the Auckland venue. 


  • The first day is learning theory and practical use of models and teaching techniques
  • The second day is hands-on Colonoscopy teaching and critiquing
  • There is pre-reading and work to between the two days
  • The fee for the course is $2000

Candidates should be actively involved in teaching colonoscopy and ideally we would like a pair from any one facility, i.e. a surgical and gastroenterological trainer to allow us to  maximise the benefit to the facility.

There will be equal places for surgical and medical trained endoscopy trainers. Our preference is for pairs of surgical and medical  delegates from the same Endoscopy Unit. Places limited to 6 for each course.
