    Pre-service and in-service education

    We provide pre-service and in-service training packages that help educate clinicians and biomedical technicians to use, maintain, and repair the NEST360 bundle of technologies. 

    Training for both professions is spread out over one week and covers both theory and hands-on application followed by assessment and certification. By learning together professional silos are broken down, leading to better understanding, respect, and appreciation of each other’s roles.

    Participants are typically drawn from NEST implementing facilities, and medical training colleges, as well as teaching institutions, i.e. biomedical engineering department staff.

    Our publicly available clinical and technical education materials are designed to be adapted and embedded in locally-developed in-service and pre-service training courses.


    NEST360 is being implemented in 13 hospitals and 8 skills labs in Kenya. NEST360 skills labs are equipped with qualified technologies where doctors, nurses, clinical officers, and technical staff can learn and practice different newborn care techniques per Kenya’s guidelines. Training includes hands-on learning and real-life application with newborn care equipment.
