To ensure participants achieve the expected learning outcomes, we recommend course attendees register for access to the ETM course manual and commence reading at least 3 weeks before the course.
It takes most people a minimum of 12 hours to cover the core chapters. The amount of time necessary is dependent upon an individual’s prior knowledge, expertise and experience in trauma management.
Due to the rapidly changing nature of trauma science, ETM does not currently provide printed copies of the ETM Course Manual as we are constantly updating manual content. There are also many videos in the online manual that are highly useful for course participants which cannot be viewed in a pdf or print version.
We accept that some learners prefer printed material to read from so please follow the steps below:
There is no way to download an entire website in a single click, however, you will find the following options to download specific pages or chapters that you may wish to read offline.
1) DOWNLOAD PDF – top of each page
Click on the PDF download button at the top of the page to download a pdf version of that page.
2) PRINT PAGE Click on the Print button (at the bottom of each page) to either print, or select “Save as PDF” to save a pdf version.

Unlike other courses we do not mandate repetition to maintain “currency”. We see ETM as a steppingstone in your trauma education journey. We have had some doctors choose to repeat the course after 3-4 years and found it useful as the course content evolves over time.
The ETM Course New Instructor Pathway includes:
ETM will arrange a private space for breastfeeding mothers and their support persons throughout the course. Please contact our admin team at email@example.com prior to the course, and we’ll liaise with venue staff to ensure a private room is made available.
