This one-day discussion-based course explores and shares ideas for good preparation room management.

It is intended for senior technicians and those aspiring to become senior technicians.

Participants are encouraged to bring along pictures of their own preparation rooms to share with the group. These could include examples of good ideas eg inventive storage solutions, and areas of concern.

Management of requisitions will also be explored so examples of how this is achieved would also be helpful eg how an overview of the week is displayed and requisition forms used.
