POD Courses

For anyone who has never received any instruction on or handled an ultrasound scanner before, Foundation level training is essential. POD Foundations courses are designed to deliver an understanding of the essential physics and familiarise the practitioner with the basics of controlling both the scanner and how to hold and manipulate the probe.

The importance of having these elements in place before attending focused introduction level training events is under acknowledged yet, as with any completely new talent, a safe space in which to develop fundamental baseline skill before entering the 'field of play' is really essential. The ORCA POD concept was conceived as a method of enabling a healthcare professional to work on those key skills. Equipped with the fundamentals of how to move a probe and visualise a structure, you are then in a good position to consider the next steps of your training.
