We will train you to perform beautiful 2D/3D/4D ultrasounds as well as early gender determination at 14 weeks. This is very different from medical ultrasound training. In a medical environment, 3D/4D ultrasound is generally only used for diagnostic purposes by perinatologists and specialists and gender is normally determined at 20 weeks gestation. Because of this, the skills that we teach are generally not available from Medical Ultrasound Training Programs. There is most definitely an art to ultrasound and there are many tips and tricks that we can teach you so that you can give your clients the best images possible. Our goal is to provide you with such thorough training that you will leave our office confident that you are ready to practice on your own.

All of our training is provided in our own offices with live, pregnant models – never phantoms. The time you spend with us will typically include 2 very full and intensive days of training (9:00am to 7:00pm). We can accomplish this quality training in a very short time because all of our training is provided on a one-on-one basis. This is of benefit because you will not have to share your hands on time with a class of students. In addition, we can tailor our instruction specifically to you, both to your strengths and areas in which you may require more time and attention. We have designed our course this way so that you can get home to your family and your business as quickly as possible. You are also welcome to bring one additional person of your choosing to be trained with you at no additional cost.
