FEES Practitioner: on-line course 

Date:   All courses fully booked - new dates coming soon for summer 2021          
Cost:   £175
Skill:    RCSLT Level 1 moving to Level 2

Two x 3 hours (6 hours in total) online interactive training sessions will build assessing clinician skills. Over two sessions we will be focusing on honing your FEES interpretation skills. You will analyse and interpret pre-recorded FEES exams and use rating scales to accurately report FEES findings.  These sessions will be supplemented with work for home practice.

Our SVS FEES DOPS framework document (direct observation of procedural skills) will provide you with a road-map of the skills required to become a FEES practitioner. It gives a step by step structured programme of learning so that you know the skills to be developed and assessed. It will provide you with detailed feedback and a useful documentation to take away at the end of the day for continuing your competency development.
