Center for Health Professional Training and Emergency Response

Welcome

The Center for Health Professional Training and Emergency Response (CHPTER) is a regional training collaborative to save and protect patient lives by providing patient care providers advanced, performance-based disaster training. Whereas most disaster training courses are designed for First Responders, CHPTER is designed to train First Receivers.  This includes all providers of patient care during a disaster -- including, clinicians, hospital workers, mental health providers, public safety officials, community volunteers and local business owners and employees. 
 
CHPTER is the only civilian training center in the nation to utilize actors and high fidelity human simulators to create real, facility-based disasters that test performance in a multi-patient environment to save human lives.  We offer multiple levels of training (including remote and/or on-site), testing and consultative services.
 
If you or your employees need to increase their disaster knowledge, preparation and/or skills, we can help.  Feel free to contact us.
