The DART course

DART is a one day airway course in which you learn the skills to apply the Difficult Airway Society guidelines. DART has been ratified and endorsed by the Difficult Airway Society.

Since its inception by trainees in Bristol, the DART course has been delivered in multiple sites around the UK and even in Australia. The content is updated from course to course in response to feedback from attendees and to reflect changes in best practice.

We aim to provide training for healthcare professionals involved with airway management, taught through small group, hands on workshops.

The next course will be on the 5th June 2020 (tbc) which will be run as an open course with places via the DART email. The next Primary FRCA DART course will be on the 2nd October 2020 (tbc). Please keep an eye out for the deanery email for further details on how to book a place.

If you are a trainer, our philosophy is to provide you materials and support the delivery of DART in your centre. Contact for further information
