Training Sessions and Member Gatherings

Alcor training sessions are given throughout the year in a variety of
locations for the purpose of training individuals to perform
cryopreservation stabilization and transport procedures. Those who do not
wish to participate are welcome to observe or simply stop by to meet Alcor
representatives.

Training sessions are attended by one or more Alcor personnel and offer an
introduction to biohazard and safety protocols, advanced airway management,
cardiopulmonary support and blood washout procedures, often using mannequins
for hands-on experience. Training also provides introductory training in
negotiating with medical personnel, families and medical examiners or
coroners. Local medical professionals and members of Alcor or other
cryonics organizations are eligible to attend. There is no charge for
attendance, but each person is responsible for their own travel and hotel
expenses.

Participation in the training is required to become a member of the Regional
Transport Team in your area. Members of the Regional Teams may be contacted
if an Alcor member needs help and will be compensated for participation in a
cryopreservation case. Team members who become Alcor members also receive a
75% discount on membership dues (excludes Life Membership).

Unless indicated otherwise, each Saturday training session will be followed
by a dinner which is open to anyone interested in meeting Alcor members,
even those who are unable to attend the training session. RSVP is required.
