Alpha Anesthesia Frequently Asked Questions
- Do I need any training prior to taking a course?
Yes. You will need to have basic IV sedation training. If you don’t have this training, we can help you find a course that will help you get the basics out of the way before you take one of our advanced anesthesia courses. If you have questions about this please reach out to us at (818) 208-0649.

These courses are the best in the country and may be even the best in the world. With this training you will leave our course more confident and more capable to handle these cases.

- Is there training for my staff?
Yes! We believe that having a trained staff is just as important as having a trained doctor. Your staff members are the eyes in the back of your head and they will help you maintain the patients vitals while you work. It is very important that your assistants have your back and are not only supportive during the process but also do not do something to hinder your work or make a situation worse. You cannot afford problems or mistakes!
- How do I know which course is right for me?
Most doctors have a different understanding of the basics of anesthesia, and because of this wide variety of understanding most people need to start off in our Level 1 course.
