AOM ESW Instructor Handbook, 6th Edition

This handbook (previously titled “ESW Instructor Manual”) has been revised to focus on the ESW program’s teaching and learning objectives.

PLEASE NOTE, this subscription does not certify you as an Emergency Skills Workshop (ESW) instructor in Canada or anywhere. The Canadian Association of Midwives (CAM) and the Association of Ontario Midwives (AOM) are not responsible for ensuring the certification of ESW instructors. Instructors are certified to teach by provincial and territorial midwifery associations.

CAM reserves the right to cancel a subscription at any time if a subscriber is not registered with their provincial or territorial association or regulatory college to hold ESW in their province or territory. CAM facilitates access to the AOM Emergency Skills Workshop (ESW) instructor materials to certified instructors in provinces and territories outside of Ontario. CAM also ensures that these materials are accessible in both English and French.
