Review the requirements below, and contact ASSET@facs.org if your site meets them. The first course will require an evaluation by national faculty and final approval by the program director, so please contact our office before scheduling your first course.
If your site meets these requirements, contact ASSET@facs.org for more information about the process for becoming a verified site.
To check your instructor status, contact ASSET@facs.org.
Instructors must be a surgeon with experience in trauma surgery. Surgeons who are in a current trauma fellowship are eligible to become instructors, but residents are not.
Instructors must participate in and successfully complete an approved ASSET course as a student, and be identified as "Instructor Potential." Candidates must teach and be evaluated in an approved ASSET course as an instructor candidate within one year of being identified as Instructor Potential under the supervision of a qualified instructor/course director.
If you register to take an ASSET course, the course site will provide you with a manual. However, if you are not registered to take a course, and are still interested in purchasing a manual, please visit the e-store.
Search for a course online, and contact the site coordinator about registration and costs associated with the course. Each course site determines the pricing of the course.
