Task Trainer Overview

The UCLA Simulation Center owns numerous task trainers used for teaching a wide variety of clinical disciplines. Generally used to support procedural skills training, they can also be used in conjunction with other learning technologies to create simulations of integrated clinical situations.

Requesting a Task Trainer

Task trainers are available to use at our facility during on-site simulation sessions and procedural skills training. They can also be rented out by members of UCLA Health, DGSOM, or affiliated groups, pending approval by our staff. An Equipment Request must be submitted for rentals.

Educators interested in reserving our task trainers may visit the Sim Request Portal and fill out the form with the necessary information about your planned session and the requested trainers.

Task trainers should be requested with as much notice as possible (at least 5 business days notice preferred) to ensure the availability of the equipment. Please allow us up to 5 business days to review and respond. We cannot guarantee that same day or short notice requests will be accommodated.
