In this chapter, we summarize several methods utilized in simulation training. Although the list of examples given is not exhaustive, it highlights the modalities most often used in a successful training program. Moreover, there should be an emphasis made that level of fidelity does not always correlate with mobility. Small focused trainers are easily moved, but have limitations on breadth of education. Conversely, the wide range of applications and variety of targeted audiences that can be reached by virtual training platforms may be outweighed by limitations in mobility. Careful planning, an understanding of available tools, and an understanding of learning objectives can lead to a successful mobile simulation program with the greatest benefit to its learners.
