Personalized Training Solutions

CRE-8 doesn’t just sell products, we provide client-centric comprehensive training solutions that improve your Medical-Based Training. We are committed to the success of our Clients’ Training Program and we prioritize your requirements and objectives as our own.

Our client-focused approach, integrates multiple manufacturers training products into a personalized solution targeting the client’s training requirements. If we can’t locate an existing product that fulfills your training requirements then we can develop an existing manufacturers product or fabricate an entirely new product to better suit our clients’ training needs.

We leverage over 23 years of experience in the government and private sectors providing Medical Training Program Support as Instructor, Program Training Manager, Special Effects Artist, Simulator Operator, Simulation Technician, SFX Fabricator and Simulation Program Administrator.

CRE-8 LLC offers multiple medical-based training manufacturers products from canine scent-reference detection training aids, individual task trainers, human patient simulators, interventional surgical simulators, medical grade adhesives, environmental effects generators, moulage, silicone wound prosthetics and simulation motion platforms.

Additionally, we develop special effects moulage & prosthetics makeup custom kits for Tactical Combat Casualty Care (TCCC, TC3), MASCAL, Active Shooter, Aircraft Incident Response, and Operational Readiness Exercise Training Events.

Our Goal

Provision Client-Focused, Training Product Solutions that Intensify Scenario Believability, Empower Confident Training Delivery and Effective Program Development, to Consistently Improve a Trainee's Knowledge, Performance, Hands-On Skills and Learning Transfer.

Deliberate Practice

Deliberate Practice in the Acquisition of Expert Performance

Deliberate practice involves attention, rehearsal and repetition and leads to new knowledge or skills that can later be developed into more complex knowledge and skills. Although other factors such as intelligence and motivation affect performance, practice is necessary if not sufficient for acquiring expertise (Campitelli & Gobet, 2011).

Recall

Practice greatly increases the likelihood that students will permanently remember new information (Anderson, 2008).

Automaticity

Practice increases student facility or automaticity (learning to apply elements of knowledge automatically, without reflection). Automaticity is usually only achieved through extensive rehearsal and repetition. Automaticity frees up students cognitive resources to handle more challenging tasks (Brown & Bennett, 2002; Moors & De Houwer, 2006).

Transferability

When students practice solving problems, they increase their ability to transfer practiced skills to new and more complex problems. This is true in childhood (Glover, Ronning, & Bruning, 1990) and adult years (Li, Schmiedek, Huxhold, Röcke, Smith, & Lindenberger, 2008).

Mastery

Practice helps students acquire expertise in subject matter and, therefore, it helps to distinguish novices from experts in given subjects (Ericsson, Krampe, & Clemens, 1993)

Enhanced Realism

Fidelity, Modality & Level of Realism

Both Fidelity & Modality impact knowledge and skill acquisition, either increasing or decreasing the overall effectiveness of the simulation-based learning experience.

The level of realism should be that which promotes the achievement of the expected learning outcome.

Fidelity

Fidelity in simulation is the degree of realism created through the selection of simulation equipment, the setting, and scenario. Fidelity also refers to the degree of exactness achieved, authenticity and corresponds to the believability of the experience. The range of fidelity can be measured as levels, low-, mid-, and high-fidelity and types, physical, psychological, and conceptual are associated with fidelity.

Higher levels of fidelity, judging it as superior to lower levels; the evidence does not support this global contention, finding all levels of fidelity beneficial when used appropriately.

Modality

Modality is the term used to refer to the type(s) of simulation equipment or methodology used, such as a task trainer, standardized or simulated patient (SP), full-body manikin/simulator, or a screen-based simulation and within each modality category, there exists an array of products representing a range of fidelity or realism.

The selection of an appropriate modality when planning a simulation depends on several factors, including the availability of equipment, stated objectives and desired learning outcomes.
